Character Description:

MRS. SHUBERT is an old-money socialite of impeccable breeding and manner. She wears classic clothes, classic jewelry, and of course, the famous Shubert Diamond. Her maiden name is very socially prominent in the city where Shear Madness is set. She should know the names and places that an old-guard aristocrat would haunt. She must move with natural- not artificial- grace and style. She must speak with natural- not artificial- cultured tones. She can really turn on the charm when needed. She does have a new, young, attractive butler with whom she may be slightly flirtatious, but she is a monogamous old-line WASP and she’s shocked when anyone thinks otherwise. At her finest she’s a real class act. (Age range 45-70. Prototypes: Susan Sullivan or Holland Taylor.)
