The Deal

Modrock: The New Musical

In 1960s London, the division between the fashionista mods and the Elvis-worshipping rockers was turning violent. Riots between the two groups were breaking out across southern England, emphasizing the differences between the youth factions: rockers saw mods as weak; mods saw rockers as oafish brutes. Amid this conflict Modrock: The New Musical finds a Romeo and Juliet–style, star-crossed love. Kitted out in a pastel Mary Quant dress and Sassoon hairstyle, Kate finds herself falling for Adam, whose pompadour, motorcycle, and surgically enhanced swiveling hips mark him as the epitome of a rocker. As their affection grows and the turmoil around them swells, they sing their feelings with words from The Kinks, The Hollies, The Who, and The Animals. Twenty hit songs such as "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood," There's a Kind of Hush," and "We Gotta Get Out of This Place" score the action and the comedy as it rushes towards climax.
