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.

Slow, Great singing, Fluffy

See it if You don't mind a well sung but minimally staged musical with a still in progress vibe and a not great plot. Or if you're the guy behind me.
