Believe in the miracle of Hot Chocolate’s “You Sexy Thing.” Walk on sunshine with Katrina & The Waves.

Based on the book by Jeremy Desmond, author of The Girl in The Frame, and described as “Rock of Ages for all ages,” the show explores second chances at the intersection of music and love, all set to the “soundtrack of the greatest one-hit wonders of all time.”
