New York Rock


Yoko Ono

Published by Samuel French Inc

8 Male 2 Female

This allegorical rock musical weaves a tale of senseless violence, heart wrenching despair and resurgence of the human spirit

In New York, love blooms between a woman who has had to flee from an abusive husband and a budding rock musician whose mother was slain by street hoodlums

The lovers' developing relationship engenders an atmosphere of renewed optimism until urban violence erupts again, changing lives forever

The show ends with a cry for peace and hope

"Endearing and enjoyable ... You'll leave ... buoyed up by the infectious tunefulness, gusto and life enhancing merriment.... The tunes - and there are many of them - are lively and lilting, ear tickling and foot stomping" ~ New Yorker

"A personal coda to a defining 20th century tragedy [and] ... an authentic document of survival" ~ N.Y. Times
