The characters include Dennis Dupree, who is a rock club owner; Lonny Barnett, who is Dennis’ right-hand man and works as a club DJ; Sherrie Christian, a small-town girl who moves to Los Angeles to pursue her dreams of becoming a rock star; and Drew Boley, an aspiring musician who falls for Sherrie.

He falls in love with Sherrie, a small-town girl who has come to Hollywood to pursue her dreams of becoming an actress.

The songs are a mix of classic rock hits from the ‘80s, as well as original songs written specifically for the musical. The show features such hits as “We Built This City,” “Here I Go Again,” and “Don’t Stop Believin’.”

The Set

The set was very minimalistic, which I really enjoyed. It allowed the focus to be on the actors and their performance rather than any props or scenery. It consisted of a few large rocks that were moved around throughout the show to create different scenes. I thought this was clever and it worked well.

The Costumes

The costumes were one of the best things about the musical. Each character had a unique and well-crafted outfit that matched their personality. The costumer did an excellent job of creating a cohesive look for the entire show.

The Actors

The musical tells the story of love and loss in the city of New York. The story is set against the backdrop of the music industry in the late 80s and early 90s. The musical features a cast of young, talented actors who bring the story to life with their energy and passion. The music is catchy and will stay with you long after you leave the theater.
