She wants to see every room in the world.
He just wants to stay in his.
The Outré Theatre Company is proud to announce a concert production of Rooms: a rock romance, part of Outré’s signature concert series! Starring Noah Levine and Erica Mendez, and directed by Managing Director Sabrina Lynn Gore, Rooms was nominated for Most Outstanding Musical for the Outer Critics Circle Awards, the Drama Desk Awards, and the Helen Hayes Awards. Outré is thrilled to present the South Florida premiere of this one-of-a kind musical.
The year is 1977. Punk rock and the New Wave have swept the world, and bands like the Sex Pistols, the Ramones, and the Clash are seizing the spotlight. Monica, an ambitious singer driven to make a name for herself, meets Ian, a reclusive guitarist who only wants to be alone with his music. Together, the two take the punk world by storm, traveling from Glasgow to London to New York, and along the way, they discover that more than music connects them. Struggling with the pressures of fame. Struggling with alcoholism, bulimia, and an unplanned pregnancy, Monica and Ian strive to find happiness in their music and in each other.
“Rooms is not just a punk rock show,” says director Sabrina Lynn Gore. “It’s about relationships. It shows us that how no matter how you try to resist, you can’t fight the innate need for human connections. I think it’s going to speak to a lot of people.”
Rooms: a rock romance will be performed for two nights only, February 27 and 28, at the Stache Drinking Den, 109 SW 2nd Avenue in Fort Lauderdale. Performances are at 7 pm, and tickets may be purchased at the door or online at www.outretheatrecompany.com. We can’t wait to see you there!
