Nico was a Fashion Model

Available in Library

Levittown teenagers, Luís and Jesse, will do anything to get into closing night of CBGB. But just when they realize their fake IDs are a bust, Luís meets his muse who becomes their ticket into the club. A series of events force Luís to examine his own identity and the character of those around him.

Cast Requirements

LUIS - 16, light skinned Latino that can pass for Caucasian,
skinny and androgynous, dresses in his “idea” of punk and
Rock & Roll

JESSE - 16, black, skinny, Luís’s best friend. Also dresses
in his “idea” of punk and Rock & Roll, although his dress is
a bit more of a sophisticated “idea.”

CHRISTA - 17, white, extremely fair, long blond straight
hair. She should quite shockingly resemble Nico from The
Velvet Underground.

Set Description

Two dumpsters behind a Babies 'R Us in Levittown, Long Island.
