GIMME SOME CANDY! Omaha, Nebraska’s brilliant Candy Project (I LOVE YOU BECAUSE & [title of show]) earned two Omaha Entertainment & Arts Award nominations for their production of ROOMS: A ROCK ROMANCE. The amazing Candy kids earned a Best Musical nomination and Best Musical Direction nod to Zack Peterson, for their take on the Paul Scott Goodman and Miriam Gordon penned rocker.
ROOMS: A ROCK ROMANCE begins in late 1970’s Glasgow where Monica, an ambitious singer/songwriter meets Ian, a reclusive rocker. The two quickly become entangled creatively and romantically. Their music takes them first to London and ultimately to New York City, where they discover the vibrant new music scene and create an intimate partnership, their love deepening while their personalities drive them apart. A five-piece rock band accompanies these two characters as they search for the balance between ambition and happiness.
We at Theatrical Rights Worldwide salute the Candy Project on another great hit! Read the whole story at http://www.omaha.com/article/20111020/GO/710209870#2010-11-oeaa-performing-arts-nominees
