Romance unfolds in a new musical wound around the tender love songs of Matthew Sweet's landmark album, Girlfriend. Two teenage boys - one a social outcast, the other a quintessential jock - realize there’s more to life than what high school has taught them. This rock musical, taking place between high school graduation and the rest of life, gives voice to everyone who has ever felt they do not quite fit in - and anyone who remembers the terror and thrill of first love will relate.
"Girlfriend is the breathless testimony of a fool for love, a rock ‘n’ roll valentine that delivers subtle wisdom with an exhilarating kick." –Rolling Stone
