BERLIN is an irreverent vaudeville about an American rapist who goes to Berlin and inadvertently starts a genderfucked feminist revolution of anarchy and turmoil.
LEADING ROLE: HOWARD NEMEROV (no singing or dancing required)
Overweight, balding, middle-aged man. Believes himself to be a messianic force of feminist liberation through means of sexual predation. This is not a realistic play and so actors who do not necessarily share Howard's physical attributes may be considered for the role.
