BOOK, MUSIC AND LYRICS BY PAUL GORDON

Harrison is obsessed with LPs from the sixties, the superior quality of analog, and trying to keep his vintage record store from going under. Rodeo Girl, a quirky Silverlake hipster, is obsessed with Harrison but he barely notices. That is, until a mysterious stranger makes them a devilish offer they can’t refuse.

“The world premiere of Analog & Vinyl, now running at the Weston Playhouse in Weston, Vermont, is exactly what theater should be—a living example of entertainment, storytelling, and commentary all rolled into one engaging evening. ...the audience was clearly delighted by its youthful energy, memorable tunes, and modern perspective”. -- Bershire Fine Arts
”This charming tale, that mixes Nora Ephron film-like romance with the Faust legend, is set to a most attractive score. What separates the songs from the usual derivative fare of rock musicals are unusually poignant lyrics and spicy harmonic language. The result is an unexpected freshness..” -- Vermont Today
