Review from Mulva

Wow! Broadway caliber performances delivered in this gem of a show. I laughed, I cried, and I am going back to see it again. If you loved Rent, you will love Rooms even more. Do not miss this!

Description

Music and Lyrics by Paul Scott Goodman (Bright Lights, Big City)

Book by Paul Scott Goodman and Miriam Gordon

Directed by Scott Schwartz

Monica, an ambitious singer/songwriter, and Ian, a hard driving rocker, become creatively and romantically entangled as they journey from their native Glasgow to London and New York and are catapulted into the punk rock explosion and a quest for stardom.  A gritty rock musical, Rooms explores the universal desire to escape and create, to love and explore.

Originally produced as part of the New York Musical Theatre Festival 2005. 

A co-production with Geva Theatre Center, Rochester, NY. *
