Rock based US Song CycleSee Rock City and Other Destination will get its UK premiere for a limited two week run at London’s Union Theatre from 15th August.
The production is produced by Katy Lipson for Aria Entertainment who continues their run of producing lesser known and interesting pieces of new musical theatre in London and Szpiezak Productions.
With music by Brad Alexander and book &lyrics by Adam Mathias See Rock City and Other Destinations is a contemporary musical about connections missed and made at tourist destinations across America: A wanderer believes his destiny is written on rooftops along the North Carolina Interstate, a young man yearns to connect with intelligent life in Roswell, New Mexico, a woman at The Alamo steps out of the shadow of her grandparents’ idealized romance to take a chance on love, three estranged sisters cruise to Glacier Bay to scatter their father’s ashes, two high school boys face unexpected fears in the Coney Island Spook House and terrified bride-to-be ponders taking the leap… over Niagara Falls. With a score that incorporates pop, rock, folk and more, each story builds on the last to create a vivid travelogue of Americans learning to overcome their fears and expectations in order to connect and reach their dreams.
