Content Warning: Adult situations and language. Sexual intimacy.
With catchy tunes and outrageous comedy, Lauren Yee’s THE SONG OF SUMMER – an unrequited romance between a reluctant rock star and his high school BFF – tops the charts. Named for that inescapable earworm that dominates the summer, THE SONG OF SUMMER is an electrifying romcom about who is behind the song that’s on everyone’s playlist and what happens when the song’s singer runs away from his headlining world tour to return to his hometown. A play with music, THE SONG OF SUMMER is multi-layered, rich and absorbing, with fascinating, complex, lovable characters who’ll keep you laughing, entertained, and intrigued from the moment the play begins.
World Premiere Produced by Trinity Repertory Company Curt Columbus, Artistic Director; Tom Parrish, Executive Director; Laura Smith, Director of Production, March 18, 2019.
