Houston's Alley Theatre Begins to Rock 'n' Roll April 24

News   Houston's Alley Theatre Begins to Rock 'n' Roll April 24 Tom Stoppard's political drama Rock 'n' Roll, featuring Tony nominee Josie de Guzman and James Black, begins performances at the Alley Theatre in Houston April 24.

Under the direction of Alley artistic director Gregory Boyd, Stoppard's music-fueled production officially opens April 29 and will run through May 24 on the Nehaus Stage.

The cast also features James Belcher, Justin Doran, Elizabeth Heflin, Philip Lehl, Emily Neves, Melissa Pritchett, Todd Waite, Sara Gaston and Spencer Plachy.

"It's August 1968, and Russian tanks are rolling into Prague," read Alley press notes for Rock 'n' Roll. "Jan, the Czech student, lives for rock music, Max, the English professor, lives for Communism, and Esme, the flower child, is high. By 1990, the tanks are rolling out, the Stones are rolling in and idealism has hit the wall. Stoppard's sweeping and passionate play spans two countries, three generations and 22 turbulent years, at the end of which, love remains — and so does rock 'n' roll."

Rock 'n' Roll has scenic design by Hugh Landwehr, costume design by Alejo Vietti, lighting design by Pat Collins, projection design by Clint Allen, with sound design by Rob Milburn and Michael Bodeen.

Tickets are available by visiting AlleyTheatre.org or by phoning (713) 220-5700. The Alley Theatre is located at 615 Texas Avenue in Houston, TX.
