A breakdown was sent out to agents yesterday for the National tour of Moulin Rouge, but since Ms. Olivo quit, I have the perfect replacement.
[SATINE] Female, 30s, all ethnicities.
Satine is a star. Beautiful, glamorous, sexy, commanding. Fully aware of her worth. Wicked sense of humor and smart… But beyond this, our heroine has a deep humanity. She has suffered and her wounds are very close to the skin. Heartbreaking. Must be an incredible singer. Belt
