“Americans have always been eager for travel, that being how they got to the New World in the first place.”
– Otto Friedrich
Thrilled to be working on See Rock City and Other Destinations, a musical travelogue that tells the stories of folks across the U. S. of A. This show is made up of a set of short vignettes, small American plays that attempt to answer the questions of what are we seeking and what holds us back from realizing the things we want. It’s told through story songs and feels akin to a particularly good episode of This American Life on NPR.
Today we’ve started our Meet Rock City series to allow folks to meet the cast and wanted to share the fun with all y’all.
These folks are an incredibly talented bunch that are telling these honest stories in some inspiring ways. And while the show keeps up the pace with its humor, the takeaway seems to make us question our basic anxieties or fears – of connecting, of missing out, of seeking, of believing or no longer being able to believe.
Welcome to the journey. Glad to have you along for the ride.
