I played the role of "Weston Hurley" in Lanford Wilson's Fifth of July way back in 1992 in Jacksonville, Florida. It was a fun role and I had to learn more chords on the guitar as my character sang a song and played guitar at the end. It was no musical, but "Wes" was a musician. One of my favorite scenes each night was at the end during a picnic of sorts. Each night, the prop mistress ran over to McDonald's and bought a ton of hamburgers for the scene. I had to scarf a few down during the scene as my character was really "voracious". Free dinner every night!
I had a great speech about whale blubber too. And when you get the chance to talk about whale blubber, well, you just do.
