After a premiere concert with the Malmö Symphonic Orchestra in Sweden and an extended Los Angeles workshop production, JUNK: A Rock Opera will be playing a one-night-only concert at Joe’s Pub featuring some of Broadway’s hottest rockers. Adapted from the epic concept album by Swedish post-punk pop band Brainpool (Christoffer Lundquist, David Birde, Jens Jannson), and featuring new material written with director Shakina Nayfack, this late-night show will introduce New Yorkers to highlights of JUNK’s unforgettable score.  Visceral and irreverent, JUNK sets the stage for a populist glam renaissance that will rock the future of musical theater.

Featuring Rebecca Naomi Jones (American Idiot, Passing Strange), Tony Vincent (American Idiot, Jesus Christ Superstar), Dan Domenech (Rock of Ages), Alysha Umphress (American Idiot, Priscilla Queen of the Desert), Katrina Rose Dideriksen (Pregnancy Pact, Bloodsong of Love), Chrsitina Sajous (Forever Dusty, American Idiot), Miguel Cervantes (Giant, American Idiot), Freddie Kimmel (Superfly), Jeremy Morse (The Trouble with Doug, Bloodsong of Love), Mike Backes (Jersey Boys Las Vegas), Paul Louis Lessard, Frank Viveros, Ashley Rose, Onyie Nwachukwu and special guest SF Bay Area superstar Ashkon Davaran!

Directed by Shakina Nayfack, musical direction by Jeremy Robin Lyons (piano), with Austin Moorhead (guitar), Christopher Bastian (bass), Jeff Roberts (drums), Renia Shukis (volin), and Bjorn Berkhout (cello).

JUNK is, according to director Shakina Nayfack, ‘part social satire, part love story, and part existential allegory.’ It’s also an exciting and tuneful rock opera, which has ‘cult hit’ written all over it.”
–Steven Stanley, LA Stage Scene

JUNK: A Rock Opera sounds like the perfect collision of David Bowie, The Who, The Clash, Pink Floyd, Roxy Music, and T. Rex. The songs are so catchy it should be illegal, the production is huge, and the record guaranteed to change your mind about where rock music is going.”
