Breakdown

About the Show: The creators of the Tony award winning musical Memphis follow the evolving American music scene into the early 1960s in this rock’n’roll inspired new musical. Elegant Edie’s team of hit makers is upended by the arrival of the newest aspiring song writer – Edie’s daughter Ginny. As Ginny strives to earn her place in the male dominated world of song writing, American rock’n’roll finds itself under siege from the incoming British Invasion.

A Page To Stage Production.
