ROOMS begins in 1970s Glasgow where Monica, an ambitious singer/songwriter meets Ian, a hard driving rocker. The two quickly become creatively and romantically entangled. Their music takes them first to London and ultimately to New York City, where they are catapulted into a vibrant new music scene and a complicated personal relationship. A five-piece rock band accompanies these two characters as they search for stardom.
This award-winning musical premiered at MetroStage and is returning for its tenth anniversary.
