The Undeniable Sound of Right Now
THE STORY: 1992. Chicago. Hank is struggling to keep his legendary rock club going amid changing times and changing tastes. But when his beloved daughter, Lena, starts dating a rising-star DJ, Hank must contend with the destructive power of the Next Big Thing. Like a blast of feedback from a Fender amp, THE UNDENIABLE SOUND OF RIGHT NOW brings to hilarious and heartbreaking life the moment in popular culture when Kurt and Courtney ruled, but Moby was just around the corner…
“…engaging…Ms. Eason…draws an affectionate but unsentimental portrait of this makeshift family as it undergoes a period of sudden stress.” —The New York Times.
“The vividness with which Eason brings Hank’s [Bar] to life…transports viewers to a different era, one where there was an actual element of danger to the music we listened to and the places where we listened…In an era where all of the old music venues, bars, and diners are closing down, it’s undeniable how timely and contemplative Eason’s play truly is.” —TheaterMania.
“…funny, wrenching and right on the money…Eason wisely gives each character their moment, their riff…THE UNDENIABLE SOUND OF RIGHT NOW rocks!” —New York Theatre Guide.
