The video features interviews with many of the show’s producers, including Matthew Weaver and Carl Levin, who say the idea started with their love of "Don’t Stop Believin’," "Here I Go Again," and other songs of the era. The show’s librettist, Chris D’Arienzo, and its Tony-nominated director, Kristin Haangi, discuss how they got on board and helped shape the show into a musical with an attitude. The show’s evolution from bar entertainment in Los Angeles to a second production in Vegas is all covered, as is the long journey toward Broadway, where the show would find success and earn five Tony nominations.
The show’s Tony-nominated star, "American Idol" finalist and Wedding Singer alum Constantine Maroulis, is also interviewed, as are cast member Michelle Mais, general manager Richard Frankel, box-office manager Peter Antanazzi, and a few of the show’s devoted fans.
