50’s, African American. Handsome and impeccably groomed. The owner of the boarding house where Esther lives. She’s seen a lot in her life. A bit of a motherly presence, but also tough and cold eyed about the world. She would like nothing better then to see Esther, who is almost like an adoptive daughter, find a happiness and love.
30’s, Romanian Orthodox Jewish Immigrant. Smart, masculine, playful, detail oriented. He is passionate about the fabrics he sells, and secretly in love with Esther. But society in 1905 forbids a relationship with her, and his religion doesn’t allow them even to touch. He expresses his desire through the texture, colors and smells of the beautiful silks he finds.
30, African American. A very beautiful, liberated and sexual “Lady of the Night” who also is a pianist and nightclub performer. Worldly, she’s lived a tough life, but she is also confident and comfortable with herself and her world. There is a fire inside her that she expresses through her forceful and impassioned music. Must play the piano well.
30’s, Barbadian Immigrant. Rugged, sexy, sensuous, dark. Over the course of the play we see George in two ways. First, through the poetic letters he sends to Esther telling of his life working on the Panama Canal. This George is manly but sensitive, a worker with a deep and romantic soul. Second, we see the “real” George who comes to America -- a bitter, desperate man looking to satisfy his own needs. This role demands an actor of great range and charisma who can fully inhabit both sides of a complicated man.
