Description

Book and lyrics by Chris Mathews, Jake Minton and Nathan Allen

Music by Kevin O’Donnell with Nathan Allen

Choreography by Tommy Rapley

Directed by Nathan Allen

Hard drinking, pill popping, parties and sex – these kids can have anything they want. But when six hot-blooded heartbroken teenagers decide they want more, life really gets dangerous. Now they’re on a high-stakes quest to find love by the end of the night… even if it kills them.

The House Theatre of Chicago injects the rock back into live theater in this over-the-top musical about high school love gone terribly wrong.

Developed in partnership with the American Music Theatre Project at Northwestern University
