The Heart of Rock & Roll at the Old Globe - Exclusive Ivy-Plus Tickets


Join the Ivy-Plus Clubs for the world premiere musical “The Heart of Rock and Roll” featuring the music of Huey Lewis & The News on Sunday, September 23 @ 2:00 pm.

The Heart of Rock & Roll celebrates the classic songs of Huey Lewis and the News in this heartwarming and hilarious new musical.  Mainstays on the Chicago dive bar circuit, Bobby and his band are hustling for their big break.  But after their latest rejection, Bobby decides it’s “Hip to Be Square,” trades in his guitar, and starts “Workin’ for a Livin’” in corporate America.  His boss, Cassandra, has struggles of her own, having sacrificed her personal life for the company.  When they both get a shot at their dreams—for Bobby, another crack at rock stardom, and for Cassandra, a chance to become CEO—they must decide “If This Is It” for their careers, or if “The Power of Love” triumphs over all.
