Riding off the high from last night's Tony Awards telecast -- which were, for lack of a better work, stupid -- we bring you word that Haight the Musical will premier this week at the first-ever Hollywood Fringe Festival.
Composed by David Wendell Nelson, this '70s-era musical "tells the story of a young man’s search for his biological parents and uncovers the heartrending tale of Aaron Thomas and Jing Po, two star-crossed lovers." The musical is set in the early 1970s in the Haight-Ashbury district, filled with "the color and brilliance of Chinatown, the outrageous lifestyle of the Haight-
Ashbury residents, Vietnam protests, and a robust dose of rock and roll."
Songs include titles like "For the Love of the Moon," "Mary Jane," "Cross to Bear," and "Dead Jam." Groovy.
