Love, Sex and the IRS
by William Van Zandt & Jane Milmore
directed by Bonnie and Rip Johnson

Beatniks Entertainment will be holding open auditions March 19th at 5:00pm and March 20th at 7:00pm for Love, Sex, and the I.R.S., a zany comedy by William Van Zandt & Jane Milmore.

The show is set in the 1970's, about two out of work (male) musicians who room together in New York. Jon decides to declare them as married to save on taxes. All is good until the IRS decides to investigate them. His roommate, Leslie, now forced to dress as a woman with the help of Jon's fiance. Who as it turns out is having an affair with Leslie. The IRS man shows up unexpected, as does Jon's mom. Leslie's ex-girlfriend then shows up wondering why he is acting so different lately. Throw in a nosy landlord and you have a wonderful night of comedy.

Show Dates are May 19, 20, 21 & 26, 27, 28  2023

There are eight characters, three women (two 20's - 30's?, one mom age 50's - 60's) and five men (two 20's - 30's?, three older than them?) We will be reading from the script.
