Pete and Keely, are a hugely popular singing duo, a pair of dazzling vocal technicians who topped the charts in the late 50s and early 60s. Now bitterly divorced, they've been reunited for a 1968 television special celebrating their lives and careers.
KEELY STEVENS - Female singer, age mid 30s to mid 50s. Charm, charm, charm -with an occasional touch of spitfire. Underneath,
there's a driven, no-nonsense professional with an enormous
and vulnerable ego.
PETE BARTEL - Male singer, age mid 30s to mid 50s. Handsome and charming -perhaps ever so slightly past his prime. He plays the straight man to Keely's comedienne. His ego is just as big and fragile as hers. He can be somewhat caustic, especially when he's covering his wounded pride.
- Strong Role for Leading Man (Star Vehicle)
- Strong Role for Leading Woman (Star Vehicle)
Plus 3 on stage musicians. Pete and Keely are brilliant musicians and a class
