Chicago, 1992. The city and its culture are changing, but grungy old Hank's Bar isn't. The "soulless" noise of electronic music is on the rise. Hank, proprietor of a legendary rock club, must battle the rising tide of The Next Big Thing as it threatens to destroy his legacy and fracture his family.
Comments Artistic Director Cody Estle, "The Undeniable Sound of Right Now is a Chicago story - set in Chicago and written by fourth generation Chicagoan Laura Eason. The play is a somewhat poignant look at the fall of rock music and the rise of house music in the early 1990s. This is a topic Laura knows well, as she was the singer, songwriter and bass player for the Chicago power pop band Tart. I am pleased to present this play about the inevitable changes which come with the passage of time and the coming of age of a new generation."
