The cult film classic has new life as a zany musical. The Blands want to open a restaurant, but they need cash. Suppose they lure weirdos to their apartment to kill and rob them? Soon, they are a financial success, but disposing of the bodies is a problem. Enter their devious apartment super, Raoul, with a proposition: he will take care of the corpses for a cut (when he's not performing at a tacky nightclub). The partnership runs amok and Mary ultimately bops Raoul with her deadly frying pan. Now the Blands have the money they need and they celebrate with a gourmet meal---guess who's the main course?

CASTING NOTES

The Characters in Eating Raoul may be cast in a great variety of ages and interpretations. It is recommended that several of the secondary parts be played by the same actors.

MARY BLAND - very pretty, unconsciously sexy in a naive sort of way.
PAUL BLAND - prematurely balding, somewhat overweight and hopelessly square but sincere, tenacious and lovable.
DR. DOBERMAN - an officious lecher.
MR. KRAY - fat and mean.
MR. LEECH - an oily, smooth-talking womanizer.
METER MAID - hip and bored with it all. 
HOWARD - bad taste incarnate who thinks he's hip.
DONNA THE DOMINATRIX - a kinky little bundle of energy with a voice as big as all outdoors; at home a sweet young housewife and mother.
JAMES - always smiling, would say or do anything to make a sale.
BOBBY - an obsessive case of arrested adolescence.
JUNIOR - a rotund gourmand.
RAOUL - a sexy young Latino with a weakness for girls and a talent to match his gigantic ego.
TIIE RAOULETfES (Gladys and Inez) - two knockout, if sluttish, young chicas. All boobs, butt and tongue.
YOLANDA - a former star of a certain age. Heavy Latino accent. 
GINGER - built like a football player but dresses like Ginger Rogers-and can dance like her too. 

Tourists, Swingers, Stick-up Man, etc.
