Shelli

Played by Carla Gugino

Shelli

A hard working straight shooter, Shelli, the production manager, is the true brains of the operation. She is always quick to get Bill going, and steer him in the right direction. Her no-nonsense style makes her somewhat feared by the rest of the crew, but she is not completely without a heart. She shares a "work marriage" with Bill -- the two are very connected. But Shelli is actually married to another roadie who works on a different tour.
