WINNER! 2011 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Book, Adam Mathias! This beat out THE BOOK OF MORMON!
See Rock City & 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. A 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.
Winner of the 2008 Richard Rodgers Award and the 2007 Jerry Bock Award, See Rock City & Other Destinations was produced off-Broadway by Transport Group at the Duke Theatre on 42nd Street in 2010.
