Congrats! Ethel is the girlfriend of Marcellus and a member of the Mayor's wife's posse of gossiping ladies. She also plays the piano. Our Ethel in my production is being played as a girly-girl, not ditsy, but just very giggly and feminine. A "wide-eyed wholesome innocent female", if you will.

Yep! She's gotta be the opposite of the "Sadder, But Wiser Girl" that Harold sings about. :) Congrats!!

so now
in everything except the movie with broderick and chenoweth, ethel is a larger girl
our script calls for a "curvacious girl of 35"
im not sure what the director wants me to do yet
physically im not fat, but im not Twiggy either.
?

Eh, I don't think it matters what she looks like, really.

Curvaceous can be taken two ways.

If it's in the "kinder way of saying a bigger girl" than I think the point is that Marcellus went for the sweet, wholesome average girl, rather than the bombshell hottie.

It might also mean curvaceous as in bombshell.
