Book, Music and Lyrics by Jim Steinman

Turned on! A new kind of rock theater piece that spans the whole range of theater from buffoonery to boiling rage. Painful, passionate, streaked with a clown's humor, it churns together in a mixture of media - including a rock band with synthesizer - the stuff from which our fantasies are spun. A maelstrom of energy and ecstasy unlike anything you've ever experienced in the theater - and a world premiere!
