Here's how it's billed: "A rock star, a fetish film star and a Tony Award winner have created a groundbreaking new musical that proves love and family can be found in the least likely of places. Raucously entertaining, Home Street Home is a dark comedy that pushes shiny buttons and bold boundaries. This diverse cast sings and dances their way through a celebratory exploration of sex work, drug use, pain and BDSM power exchange. Follow Sue, a teenage runaway with a dark secret, as she gets scooped up by a saucy tribe of slutty, castaway street punks that welcome her into their wild yet surprisingly functional street family. Enriched by the author's own experiences, a very human truth emerges... we can all find happiness somewhere."

Home Street Home features music by NOFX punk musician Fat Mike (Michael John Burkett), lyrics by Fat Mike, Jeff Marx and Goddess Soma (Soma Snakeoil), and a book by Goddess Soma and Fat Mike.

The cast features Shaleah Adkisson (Hair), Brandon Curry (Ghost The Musical), Alex Emanuel ("House of Cards," "Rescue Me"), Sam Given (Rent), Kevin Hegmann (Rock of Ages), Alex Robert Holmes ("1000 Ways to Die"), Jamey Hood (The Shaggs), Justine Magnusson (Whistle Down the Wind), Matt Magnusson, Zach Martens (Sleep No More), Ryan O'Connor ("School of Rock"), Lauren Patten ("Arrested Development") and Kristin Piacentile (Sweet Charity).

A studio album of songs from the production, featuring performances by Tony Award winner Lena Hall (Hedwig), was released Feb. 10. The premiere has scenic design by Caite Hevner Kemp, lighting design by Tom Ontiveros, costume design by Goddess Soma, sound design by David Crawford and musical direction by David O. Home Street Home is produced by Jeff Marx and Keith Sherman.
