About the show

1h 20m | Previews start Sep 21 | Town Stages (Soho/Tribeca)

The original and irreverent apocalyptic rock musical comedy born in a New Brunswick, NJ basement returns to Town Stages. More…

It's the end of the world in New Jersey! A burnout basement rocker and his ex-girlfriend, a rising star astrophysicist, may have the key to surviving the black hole bearing down on earth. If they can reconcile their feelings and manage a dangerous journey on the NJ Turnpike, they just may save their music, each other, and the mole people who live beneath them.
