Why See Heart of Rock and Roll?

Brand new musical featuring the hits of Huey Lewis and the News

A world premiere of the brand new musical, Heart of Rock and Roll is kicking off The Old Globe's 2018/2019 season! Inspired by the music of 80's legend Huey Lewis and his band Huey Lewis and the News, Heart of Rock and Roll takes us back through some of the bands biggest hits and gives them a heart-pumping new setting. Heart of Rock and Roll will be directed by Gordon Greenberg with a brand new book by Jonathan Abrams and story by Tyler Mitchell (alongside Abrams).

With hits such as "Hip to Be Square", "Do You Believe in Love", "Working For a Livin" and not forgetting the monster hit "The Power of Love", Heart of Rock and Roll is no ordinary stage show, bringing the spine tingling feeling of Huey Lewis to the stage like no musical before!

What is Heart of Rock and Roll about?

Former rock singer Bobby has sold out, ditching life in music for a stable existence in corporate America. As he is just about the land the biggest deal of his career, and get the girl of his dreams, Bobby's old band suggests one last crack at the big time. Can Bobby hold onto his new life and job or will he jeopardise everything for his dream of rock and roll glory?
