BREAKDOWN

PLAYING HOT, presented as part of Pipeline Theatre Company’s 10th anniversary season, is set within a brassy dance hall and deconstructs the incredible story of the birth of jazz in New Orleans. Retracing the rise and fall of Buddy Bolden, the little-known trumpeter who pioneered the radical sound that would become America’s Art Form, the show is neither biography nor period piece, neither play nor musical, but an explosive and innovative theatrical event in the style of jazz.

BUDDY BOLDEN
Male, African American, mid 20’s - mid 30’s. A virtuosic trumpet player, charismatic, moody and obsessive all at once. Seeking actors with strong musicianship for this role. Ideally with a traditional/New Orleans-style jazz background. SEEKING WELL SEASONED TRUMPET PLAYERS ONLY.
