About the Play:

Set in the tail end of the big, bad 1980s at one of Hollywood’s last legendary venues on the Sunset Strip, sex machine Stacee Jaxx takes the stage as scantily clad groupies line up to turn their fantasies into reality.  Amidst the madness, aspiring rock star, Drew, longs to be the “next big thing,” and for small-town girl Sherri whose fresh off the bus from Kansas. The rock ‘n roll fairy-tale is about to end when German developers sweep into town with plans to turn the fabled Strip into just another capitalist stripmall. Can Drew, Sherri, and the gang save the venue, and themselves, before it’s too late?  Only the music of hit bands Styx, Journey, Bon Jovi, Pat Benatar, Whitesnake and more hold the answer.  

Nominated for Five Tony Awards Including Best Musical
