Times Square tells the story of Nicky Marotta, a volatile street kid with dreams of becoming a musician, and Pamela Pearl, the withdrawn daughter of a wealthy City Commissioner. The two forge an unlikely bond, and through the alchemy of rock and roll, turn their lives inside out and recreate themselves as a proto-Riot Grrl punk duo called The Sleeze Sisters. Together, they find friendship, love, and music on the rough-and-tumble streets of pre-Disney Times Square.
A new musical based on the cult classic 1980 film of the same name, TIMES SQUARE brings together veteran singer-songwriter Jill Sobule with her longtime collaborator Robin Eaton, Tony-nominated writer Jim Lewis and director Steve Cosson, Artistic Director of the acclaimed theater company The Civilians.
