High Fidelity, the second show in Paul Taylor-Mills’ inaugural season at The Turbine Theatre (following Harvey Fierstein's Torch Song), is based on the novel by Nick Hornby and features a book by David Lindsey-Abaire, music by Tom Kitt, and lyrics by Amanda Green. The musical follows Rob, a 30-something owner of a London record shop who’s mastered the art of finding rare vinyl and losing girlfriends. Laura just dumped him, and Rob is moving on.

The production features sets and costumes by David Shields, sound by Dan Samson, lighting by Andrew Exeter, and casting by Will Burton. Helen Siveter is the associate director.
