SEE ROCK CITY & OTHER DESTINATIONS is a contemporary musical about connections missed and made at tourist destinations across America: a wanderer believes his destiny is written on rooftops along the North Carolina Interstate; a young man yearns to connect with intelligent life in Roswell, New Mexico; a woman at the Alamo steps out of the shadow of her grandparents' idealized romance to take a chance on love; three estranged sisters cruise to Glacier Bay to scatter their father's ashes; two high school boys face unexpected fears in the Coney Island Spook House; a terrified bride-to-be ponders taking the leap...over Niagara Falls. With a score that incorporates rock, folk, pop and more, each story builds on the last to create a vivid travelogue of Americans learning to overcome their fears and expectations in order to connect.
