The Tony-nominated Joe Iconis is getting ready to bring us an all new musical. Punk Rock Girl will world premiere as part of the 2020-2021 season at Long Island's Argyle Theatre.
Punk Rock Girl follows the story of 16-year-old Angela as she struggles to find out where she belongs. It features iconic female lead songs by Pat Benatar, Avril Lavigne, P!nk, Blondie, Echosmith, and more.
In a statement about the production Iconis said:
In punk music, you don’t have to be the most talented musician, the best singer, or the most beautiful rock star. The point of punk is that it’s music for everyone—it’s a party for people who aren’t polished, who aren’t perfect. It’s about finding your passion and not being ashamed of your inner weirdo. This lovingly-trashy show explores serious issues in an occasionally fantastical, often explosive, always heartfelt way.
Casting a creative teams will be announced at a later date.
