is a twisted tale of the American dream. Based on the 1982 cult-classic film, Mary and Paul Bland want to open a restaurant and go to extreme lengths to make their dream a reality. In a desperate and murderous effort to obtain cash, the Blands lure swingers into their apartment, snatch their money and kill them. As the cash pile grows, so does the pile of dead bodies. Devious janitor Raoul offers a solution for a cut of profit. But can this partnership continue for long?
Hailed as "the most entertaining musical about sex and cannibalism around" by Back Stage West and "Fun" by the Los Angeles Times, Eating Raoul explores the journey to the American dream in a uniquely homicidal way. The show opened off-Broadway in 1992 with a book by Paul Bartel and music and lyrics by Jed Feuer and Boyd Graham.
Principal Characters (ages 20-40ish)
Mary Bland – very pretty, unconsciously sexy in a naïve sort of way.
Paul Bland – prematurely balding, somewhat overweight and hopelessly square but sincere, tenacious and loveable.

Company (ages 20-60ish)
Other characters (played by members of the company, doubling-up possible)
The Raoulettes (Gladys and Inez) – two knockout, if slightly sluttish, young chicas. All boobs, butt and tongue.

Dr Doberman – an officious lecher.
Mr Kray – fat and mean.
Mr Leech – an oily, smooth-talking womaniser.
Meter maid – hip and bored with it all.
Howard – bad taste incarnate, who thinks he’s hip.
James – always smiling, would say or do anything to make a sale.
Bobby – an obsessive case of arrested adolescence.
Junior – a rotund gourmand.
Yolanda – a former star of a certain age. Heavy Latino accent.
