Meanwhile, the women Strings meets, be it a masseuse at a hotel or his cousin at the funeral parlor, can't resist him or dreams about their future by his side. Only his blue-collar brother Duke remains unimpressed by the singer.
The actors who bring these folks to life are so all-around terrific that it would be unfair not to name check them all. Keith Nobbs is deadpan hilarious as the obsequious Jimmy, C.J. Wilson brings a dry wit to Duke, Adelaide Clemens and Jenn Lyon are winning as the two women who respond in different ways to Strings' considerable charms and Jonathan Hogan is moving in a cameo toward the end of the show.
