By Sarah Gancher
Directed by Rachel Chavkin

Oct. 4 – 29, 2017


Chloe is a struggling stand-up comedian – until she decides to sit in for her dead father as the bassist for his seminal psychedelic rock band. While the band plays on and old tensions rise, Chloe must navigate memory, history, and the lessons we’ve learned from the Sixties. Written by Sarah Gancher and directed by Tony nominee Rachel Chavkin (Broadway’s Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812) comes a high-energy rock & roll comedy with live music you don’t want to miss!

This play runs approximately two and a half hours, including one 15-minute intermission.

LISTEN UP! This show rocks. It’s loud. It contains sex, nudity, drugs, strobe effects, and profanity. You’ve been warned.

“Rachel Chavkin [is] one of the most gifted [directors] working today.” – The New York Times
