REWIND is an original 80s pop musical about love, redemption and the magic of second chances.

A powerful music producer derails a young girl's promising singing career and she spends the next 50 years waiting tables. When our producer meets an untimely end he is barred from heaven. To gain entrance he must, with a little help from the Universe, rewind time and help her reclaim her true destiny.

Here's what one Fringe reviewer said about REWIND'S last Fringe production:“If you dig ROCK OF AGES and GREASE, you'll love REWIND – a fantastic collection of ‘new 80s songs.' This show proves that you don't need Broadway fireworks to make a compelling story explode on the stage!”

It’s the stuff that hit 80s movies are made of in many ways and the cast is costumed perfectly for the journey.  Once we go back in time, however, the story gets a bit scattered...

Like a mouthful of exploding candy, Rewind is a bouncy, buoyant, bubbling confection of 80's "PopRocks" for your musical soul. With bright new songs that feel retro, energetic acting and direction, Sam and Geoffrey Rose's time-bending search for a hit song makes you smile for each of its 100+ minutes.

The show is a 90-minute timeless adventure that keeps you guessing, but so well entertained! Integrated with a pulsing score and electrifying performances by an impressive company of actors, the musical stars seven veteran actors in a high-energy production that is a carnival of delights. Uproariously funny, complete with a double love story, some of the best original pop songs ever written – not to mention, copious amounts of blue eyeshadow, cans of hairspray, and even a Star Wars Yoda impression. The result is a musical that will not only charm and amuse audiences of any age, but you will be singing these tunes in the shower for days.

Written by 80’s pop songwriters Geoffrey and Sam Rose, Rewind is a well-directed (Nancy Dobbs Owen), unexpectedly touching, and downright fun musical with terrific acting, laughs, and songs you’ll be singing out the door. - RECOMMENDED
