Turn It Up

New Line rocks out

In Nick Hornby's novel High Fidelity, Rob is a kind of every-schlub who views each life crisis -- the encroachment of middle age, his floundering record store, a problematic love life -- through the prism of pop music. John Cusack made a believable Rob in the big-screen version of the book, and now New Line Theatre stages the musical version of the song-obsessed tale. Since the plot of High Fidelity revolves around rock snobs, let's hope that the score includes a few nods to Kraftwerk and the Velvet Underground. The show will be performed in the A.E. Hotchner Studio Theatre at Washington University (6445 Forsyth Boulevard) at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday (June 12 to July 5). Tickets are $10 to $18 with discounts for students and seniors, and they can be obtained by calling MetroTix at 314-534-1111. For more information visit www.newlinetheatre.com.
Thursdays-Saturdays. Starts: June 12. Continues through July 5, 2008
