On the studio floor before you is an incendiary rock and roll band, all of them masters of their craft. Their commission: To compose the soundtrack for a romance movie with a classic Hollywood happy ending.
But something goes wrong. As the band nears the end of the soundtrack session the unexplainable happens. They discover that their music has sabotaged the happy ending of the film. Some how, some way, a mysterious parallel has been made between the love torn lead singers on stage and the troubled romance on the silver screen. Through the power of their music, will the band be able to restore the happy ending and bring the film's lovebirds back together?
This is a rock show unlike anything you've ever seen - blending film, music and live performance into a brand new rock music experience.
Parallel Worlds is from writer/composer Brandon Beckner, songwriter/lyricist Steve Sobel, Stage Director Jimmy Maize, Music Director Eli Zoller, Projection Designer David Bengali, Sound Designer Josh Liebert of Gareth Owen Sound, General Manager Dailey-Monda Management, and Executive Producer Tate Theatrics.
