See Rock City & Other Destinations is a contemporary pop-rock musical road trip that ventures to tourist destinations across America, mapping out stories of sightseers in search of fellow travelers: a wanderer believes his destiny is written on rooftops along the North Carolina interstate; a young man yearns to connect with intelligent life in Roswell, New Mexico; a woman at the Alamo steps out of the shadow of her past to take a chance on love; estranged sisters cruise to Glacier Bay to scatter their father's ashes; high school boys face unexpected fears in a Coney Island spook house; a terrified bride-to-be ponders taking the leap...over Niagara Falls.

See Rock City and Other Destinations creates a vivid travelogue of moving characters whose connections missed and made inspire us along the way. Winner of the 2008 Richard Rodgers Award and the 2007 Jerry Bock Award, See Rock City and Other Destinations, with music by Brad Alexander and book and lyrics by Adam Mathias, received a development workshop with Transport Group in 2009; the 2010 production will be this show’s official New York City premiere. Director Jack Cummings III (2010 Drama Desk Award nominee - The Boys in the Band) stages the production in an unconventional format, where the audience has the unique experience of enjoying the journey in the midst of the action.
