About the show

This rock musical puts a modern spin on the myth of the ancient sirens, who lured sailors to their deaths. Here, the turbulent sea is the music industry, and the siren is Skylar Cole, a seductive indie singer in NYC. More…

Skylar’s biggest fan is Remy Morgan, a young aspiring rock star. Although the two form an immediate bond, their attempts at connection are thwarted by Skylar’s hungry fans known as the Vultures, her possessive personal assistant, her suspicious boyfriend, and her own sordid past. Soon, Remy finds herself drawn into a world of drugs, lust, and empty promises. Will Remy find success? Or will she fall prey to Skylar’s siren song forever?

Entertaining, Developing, Good performances, Rough, Good music

See it if It's RENT meets Rock of Ages meets Single White Female. Solid music and performances in this still developing show. Google the backstory.

Don't see it if You need to see a fully polished show. You don't like pop/rock music in a show. You hated RENT.

Ambitious, Entertaining, Great singing, Work in progress

See it if Rent-styled musical with strong female central leads. Darker side of celebrity fandom. Solid soundtrack! Logan character exceptional.

Don't see it if You aren't interested in seeing shows in progress - it's uneven and too long.

Entertaining, Indulgent, Edgy, Soulful

See it if you're patient to watch a lengthy work-in-progress with nuggets of terrific harmonies and voice (kudos, Chris Gleim!) and a poignant story.

Don't see it if you're expecting a polished production--set transitions choppy and mikes glitchy--or are indifferent to flawed star/adoring fan dynamic.

Also So impressive that book/music/lyrics sole creation of co-lead Rori Nog... Read more Read less

Enchanting, Intense, Resonant, Great acting, Ambitious

See it if you like rock musicals, you like shows that take you on an emotional roller coaster, you want to see terrific acting and singing.

Cliched, Disappointing, Long, Great acting, Indulgent

See it if you're ok with sitting through a 3 hour long production, plot cliches, and almost every song sounding the same. Definitely has a Rent vibe.

"I found the peripheral characters were more interestingly drawn than the core...Some of the singing was pitchy at times, though for Skylar's character, that seemed appropriate because she had that oh-well-don't-care punk rock vibe that made her so alluring in the first place...You do need some s...
