High Fidelity High Fidelity

Season 6-21 February 2015
Venue ANU Arts Centre

Synopsis

Rob Gordon is a Brooklyn record shop owner in his thirties obsessed with making top five lists for everything, always observing rather than participating in life. When his girlfriend Laura leaves him, he goes through a painful re-evaluation of his life and lost loves (with a little help from his music) and he slowly learns that he has to grow up and let go of his self-centered view of the world before he can find real happiness.

High Fidelity is a show about the love of music, and the importance it has in our lives, whether we realise it or not. The literary heritage of the show gives it a strong, compelling narrative, and fully realised and fleshed out characters. High Fidelity features contemporary music written by Tom Kitt, who wrote Next to Normal, a Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize winning musical.
