It’s story about a boy and a girl chasing their dreams, finding each other and falling in love, against the neon-lit backdrop of the Sunset Strip and LA’s loudest, meanest rock club. And it all unfolds to big-hair rock anthems that readers of a certain age will remember fondly from their adolescence.
Before this 5-time Tony nominee explodes onto our stage, here’s a primer with 10 songs from it performed by their original artists. In the musical, these will be sung by the cast with some changes to the arrangements.
