MCC Theater's New York premiere of the new rock musical The Lonely Few—featuring music and lyrics by Zoe Sarnak (A Crossing) and a book by Rachel Bonds (Jonah)—official opens May 20 at Off-Broadway's Newman Mills Theater. It began performances April 27 and will run until June 2. 

The Lonely Few is a queer love story between two musicians: Lila (Tony winner Lauren Patten) and Amy (Taylor Iman Jones). Lila has a band called the Lonely Few, who have a standing gig at Paul's Juke Joint in Kentucky. Sparks fly when an established musician, Amy, gives the Lonely Few a chance to join her on tour. 

Take a look at the new rock musical, which features onstage seating for the audience, in the production photos below.
