Post Audrey's appearance
In the same vein as my thread about Mimi Marquez, how much should physical appearance count when casting Audrey? Obviously the actress should be able to nail her ‘dumb like a fox’ persona, but I think she should at least be somewhat attractive. Otherwise, what would Orin see in her?

She does indeed need to be attractive and shapely...Seymour's "unattainable" dream girl.

Post Re: Audrey's appearance
In the production I worked on recently, our Audrey was definitely very pretty, although I don't necessarily think she needs to be a stunner. Infact I'd go so far to say it works better if she isn't. As far as what Orin sees in her, given how twisted and abusive their relationship is, Orin wants someone he can easily beat into submissiveness (both emotionally and physically). Our Audrey's design, for example, was extremely heavy on the makeup and trashy clothes. She has zero self confidence, partly thanks to her relationship and dependence on Orin, and her appearance was designed to reflect that.
