The show by lyricist-librettist Adam Mathias and composer Brad Alexander had a summer 2010 Off-Broadway run by the Transport Group, following a separate world-premiere staging by Barrington Stage Company in Massachusetts. The musical uses an ensemble of actors to play multiple roles throughout the 90-minute experience.

According to earlier Transport Group notes, "See Rock City & Other Destinations is a contemporary pop-rock musical road trip that ventures to tourist destinations across America, mapping out stories of sightseers in search of fellow travelers: a wanderer believes his destiny is written on rooftops along the North Carolina interstate; a young man yearns to connect with intelligent life in Roswell, New Mexico; a woman at the Alamo steps out of the shadow of her past to take a chance on love; estranged sisters cruise to Glacier Bay to scatter their father's ashes; high school boys face unexpected fears in a Coney Island spook house; and a terrified bride-to-be ponders taking the leap...over Niagara Falls. See Rock City & Other Destinations creates a vivid travelogue of moving characters and connections missed and made along the way."

There were rumblings about a possible cast album for the show, but news of a recording has not surfaced.
