Dorothy Brock: mid-40s to mid-50s, about to age any minute, a Broadway star, "Pretty Lady" is her return to Broadway after a 10-year absence, there's a touch of well-masked desperation in her demeanor, grand, imperious, selfish, must have glamour, sing well, and move with grace;

Julian Marsh: late 30s-50s, Broadway director, powerful presence, when he enters a room you can cut the tension in the air with a knife, the words "can't" and "no" do not exist in his language of "show business," he eats, drinks, and lives the show, powerful, commanding, sexy, handsome, intelligent, and knowing, can handle any situation with wit, strength, and charm, a svengali, ruthless, but deep down he has a caring heart, baritone;
Billy Lawlor: mid-20s to early 30s, classic juvenile, clean-cut good looks, warm, charming, personable, everybody's best friend, "an okay guy," "someone you can take home to mother," protects Peggy and looks out for her but would love to date her as well, superb tapper and first rate legit Broadway tenor;
