Rock 'n' Roll Story

It's August 1968, and Russian tanks are rolling into Prague. Jan, the Czech student, lives for rock music; Max, the Cambridge professor, lives for Communism; Esme, the flower child daughter of Max and his wife, Eleanor, is high. By 1990, the tanks are rolling out of Czechoslovakia, the Stones are rolling in and idealism has hit the wall in both countries. This extraordinary theatrical event from four-time Tony Award winner Tom Stoppard (The Coast of Utopia) comes to Broadway following a record-breaking run in London's West End with five of its original stars, including Olivier Award winner Rufus Sewell as Jan. A deeply felt look at the connection between rock music and revolution, Stoppard's sweeping and witty play spans two countries, three generations and 22 turbulent years, at the end of which love remains—and so does rock 'n' roll.
