Girlfriend (A 90s Rock Musical)
Book by Todd Almond
Music and lyrics by Matthew Sweet
Directed by Rob Ruggiero
It’s 1993 and mix-tapes are the language of love. In small-town Nebraska during the summer between high school and whatever comes next, college-bound jock Mike and funny but awkward Will find themselves unexpectedly drawn to each other. The lines of friendship become blurred as they figure out what comes next. An upbeat rock musical that tackles the universal experience of first love and self-acceptance — set to Matthew Sweet’s seminal pop rock album.
