  • LENA — Hank’s daughter. Tough, business-smart, a bit cryptic, cards kept close to the chest. Has an air of disinterest that makes her irresistible to men. Early 20s.
  • NASH — A DJ. A looker. A charmer. Driven and ambitious but has a heart, not too slick. 20s.
  • TOBY — Hank’s bookkeeper, booker, guy who watches the door. A sweet, friendly, rock nerd, in awe of Hank. 20s.
  • JOEY — The landlord’s son. First-generation and anxious to stake his claim. Is constantly trying to prove himself but pretends he’s no. 30s.

Actors will be asked to read sides from the script which will be provided by the theatre.

Synopsis:

1992. Chicago. Hank is struggling to keep his legendary rock club going amid changing times and changing tastes. But when his beloved daughter, Lena, starts dating a rising-star DJ, Hank must contend with the destructive power of the Next Big Thing. Like a blast of feedback from a Fender amp, THE UNDENIABLE SOUND OF RIGHT NOW brings to hilarious and heartbreaking life the moment in popular culture when Kurt and Courtney ruled, but Moby was just around the corner…
