The Heart of Rock and Roll musical follows Bobby, who takes up a corporate job at a Milwaukee box factory after his band keeps flopping. There, he meets Cassandra, the owner's daughter who wants to prove her own leadership chops, and romance blossoms.
The show is set in the present day, but the songs hail from the '80s and '90s. During those decades, Huey Lewis and the News scored 19 top 10 singles across three Billboard charts: Hot 100, Adult Contemporary, and Mainstream Rock. All five of their albums from 1982-91 reached the Top 30 on the Billboard 200 album chart and were certified Gold, Platinum, or Multi-platinum. Not to mention that the band achieved its peak when "The Power of Love" got an Oscar nomination.
That doesn't mean Lewis and his band are any less popular now, and the premiere of The Heart of Rock and Roll in New York proves that. The show also enjoyed audience success for its 2018 world premiere at San Diego's Old Globe.
Feel the power of love at this musical rom-com featuring the songs of Huey Lewis and the News.
