Goodman Theatre presents the Midwest premiere of Rock 'n' Roll by four-time Tony Award winner Tom Stoppard. Charles Newell directs.
It's August 1968, and Russian tanks are rolling into Prague. Jan, the Czech student, lives for rock music; Max, the English professor, lives for Communism; and Esme, the flower child, is high. By 1990, the tanks are rolling out, the Stones are rolling in and idealism has hit the wall. Stoppard's sweeping and passionate play spans two countries, three generations and 22 turbulent years, at the end of which, love remains--and so does rock 'n' roll.
