“Highly energetic and exuberant.”
‘Fame’ tells the story of a group of dance, drama and music students at New York City High School of Performing Arts. Among them are fame-obsessed Carmen, ambitious actress Serena, wisecracking comedian/bad boy Joe, quiet violinist Schlomo, “talented but dyslexic” dancer Tyrone, determined actor Nick, overweight dancer Mabel, and serious dancer, Iris, from a poor family. They navigate their way through the highs and lows, the romances and the heartbreaks and the ultimate elation of life. Throughout the musical we learn the motivation and the backgrounds of the students, but we also learn the darker sides to their careers in the industry.
