Description:
Good Enough: The Musical is a new musical that challenges us all. Ego's aside, are any of us good enough to fit into each other's worlds? Or, are we even good enough to fit into our own? A modern love story of two young men unexpectedly falling into the traps of love. Both with a promising career but still battling stigmas and social norms to uphold love itself. Love wins, but what if love isn't Good Enough?

The music style for this musical is mostly Soul, R&B, Hip-hop with a sprinkle of classic theatre. We're planning to open this musical Spring/Summer of 2021. We understand the current pandemic but wanted to get a head start on casting to see what talent Chicago has to offer.

Jamal (Black Male, 20-25) Down-low gay, soon to be pro, college basketball player. He's leveled headed and focused on the future but is haunted by a tragic past and absent father.

Nathan (Any Race Male, 20-30): Flamboyantly gay cameraman, that's the life of the party. He knows all the latest lingo and loves the hot boiled gossip.

Singing and dancing required.
