The long anticipated announcement came yesterday: Rooms, a rock romance, which made its World Premiere here at MetroStage last season, debuts in New York next month at New World Stages. Doug Kreeger continues the role of recluse 1970’s Glasgow musician Ian Wallace, and Leslie Kritzer replaces Natascia Diaz in the role of Scottish/Jewish princess Monica P. Miller, who dreams of becoming a rock star.
The Paul Scott Goodman (Bright Lights, Big City) musical received rave reviews here. Rooms producer Van Dean wrote us “MetroStage was the perfect theater for the World Premiere of ROOMS, a rock romance. Everyone on our creative team had a wonderful experience and we are thrilled at the warm and encouraging reception we received in DC. The experience was integral to the success of the show and its journey back to New York.”
Rooms, a rock romance previews begin February 27th, with opening night set for March 16th at New World Stages, 340 W 50th St, NYC.
