If the Book of Mormons is a Broadway hit, why not the story of the greatest Mayor on earth?
According to the National Post, the producers of Rob Ford The Musical: The Birth of a Ford Nation have issued an open casting call in Toronto. So what does it take to play the world’s most famous crack-smoking mayor?
“For the Ford role, producers are looking for somebody ’25-40’s, strong singer and comedic ability,’ although they won’t need to match the mayor’s generous proportions. Other roles include the mayor’s brother Doug and a transvestite.”
Casting will be “color blind” and no resemblance to the mayor is needed. The ability to smoke crack is probably a plus.
