This rock opera, set at the dawn of the 1990’s, tells the story of one year in the life of a group of bohemian New Yorkers, who live in a loft apartment without power in the East Village.
They are struggling with their careers, love lives and the effects of the AIDS epidemic on their community.
The story centers around two roommates, Mark, an aspiring filmmaker, and Roger, a budding musician, who scramble for money to pay rent to their landlord and one-time roommate, Benny.
While a former tragedy has made Roger numb, Mark tries to capture it through his attempts to make a film.
Meanwhile, their friend Tom, a professor has fallen for an Angel, and Mark’s ex-girlfriend, Maureen, strings along her new love interest, Joanne.
In the year that follows, the group deals with love, loss and recovery, in a truly inspiring and powerful story.
