ROOMS a rock romance has music and lyrics by Paul Scott Goodman and book by Goodman and Miriam Gordon, and is directed by Scott Schwartz.
ROOMS a rock romance begins in 1970s Glasgow where Monica, an ambitious singer/songwriter meets Ian, a reclusive rocker. The two quickly become entangled creatively and romantically. Their music takes them first to London and ultimately to New York City, where they discover the vibrant new music scene and create an intimate partnership, their love deepening while their personalities drive them apart. A five-piece band accompanies these two characters as they search for the balance between ambition and happiness.
Leslie Kritzer's Broadway credits include A Catered Affair (Drama Desk nomination), Legally Blonde (Clerence Derwent Award for Most Promising Performer) and Hairspray. She received critical acclaim and a Time Out New York Award for her sold-out Joe's Pub run of "Leslie Kritzer Is Patti LuPone At Les Mouches" (a performance she repeated at The Plush Room in San Francisco). Doug Kreeger most recently appeared regionally in the world premiere production of Rooms: a rock romance, receiving rave reviews from every critic including the Washington Post and Variety. Before that he appeared as Chita Rivera's boy-toy in the highly anticipated, sold-out and critically lauded production of Signature Theatre's The Visit. Doug's performance as Richard Loeb in Off-Broadway's Thrill Me: The Leopold And Loeb Story was called "compelling" by both The New York Times and New York Post and "riveting" by Rex Reed in The New York Observer.
ROOMS a rock romance enjoyed its critically acclaimed World Premiere as a co-production between MetroStage in Alexandria, VA and Geva Theatre Center in Rochester, NY after a showcase as part of the New York Musical Theatre Festival (NYMF) in 2005.
