Photos: High Fidelity Opening Night Party

The new Broadway musical High Fidelity opened on December 7th at the Imperial Theatre (249 W. 45th St.) after beginning previews on November 20th.

"A first-time collaboration between three talented young writers -- composer />/>/>Tom Kitt/>, lyricist />/>/>Amanda Green/>, and book-writer />/>/>David Lindsay-Abaire/>, the Tony-nominated playwright -- High Fidelity is a new musical comedy based on the best-selling novel by Nick Hornby," state notes. The show "tells the story of Rob, a record store owner who knows almost everything there is to know about pop music, but almost nothing about how to hold on to a girl. Rob's love life, already a broken record of heartache, falls off the charts completely when he gets dumped by Laura….but that just sets him up for one of the top 5 romantic comebacks ever."

High Fidelity stars />/>/>/>/>Will Chase/> (Lennon, Rent and Aida) as Rob and />/>/>/>/>/>Jenn Colella/> (Urban Cowboy) as Laura.  They are joined in the 14-member cast by Jay Klaitz as Barry and />/>Christian Anderson/> as Dick (who play the colorful clerks in Rob's record store Championship Vinyl), />/>Jeb Brown/> as Ian (Rob and Laura's New Age-intensive upstairs neighbor), as well as />/>Rachel Stern/>, />/>Emily Swallow/>, />/>Kirsten Wyatt/>, />/>Caren Lyn Manuel/> and Anne Warren (who portray the women from Rob's checkered romantic past). High Fidelity is choreographed by />/>/>/>/>/>Christopher Gattelli/> (/>/>Altar Boyz, />/>/>/>/>Martin Short/>: Fame Becomes Me).
