Doug Kreeger plays a hard-drinking rocker in Paul Scott Goodman's Rooms at MetroStage.
The show is set in the 1970s and 1980s, which has afforded Kreeger the opportunity to do some interesting research. "I found this great copy of Spin magazine that outlined what the New York music scene was like in 1977, as well as this amazing interview with Iggy Pop about people who didn't get the punk scene. Plus, I've been listening to a lot more of groups like The Clash and The Sex Pistols," he says. "I've also had to learn to play the guitar better -- I learned how to play three Bob Dylan songs for The Times They Are A-Changin' but that was about it. And of course, I'm working on my Scottish accent. It's kind of a marathon for an actor."
