About the Show

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.

Contains mature themes and explicit moments of sexuality. Children should be 14 years of age or older to attend this performance.

  • In this play, we learn that the source of a popular song is not who we think it is. That source doesn’t even know that the song is a hit. Similarly, there are people who quietly impact us in ways that aren’t noticed by others. If your greatest successes so far were to have “co-writers,” those who helped you succeed, who might they be? And do they know they’ve impacted you this way?
