Family Album

Does settling down mean selling your soul?

Singer/songwriter Heimvey and his band have been on the road for years, living their middle-aged version of the rock ‘n’ roll dream. But when they stop to visit old friends — a former bandmate, along with an ex-girlfriend who has created a new kind of life that blends art and family — they all begin to question the choices they made. This rollicking, irreverent musical by Stew and Heidi Rodewald, the team behind the Tony Award–winning hit “Passing Strange,” takes wicked aim at the tradeoffs and dilemmas facing anyone trying reconcile the dreams of youth with the practical realities of grown-up life.
