Only the character's emotions are naked as eight distinctive teenagers bare their inner thoughts and feelings to provide a striking perspective on the pleasures and problems of adolescence. Eighteen musical numbers form the nucleus of monologues and short scenes tracing each character's development in school. Laced with side splitting humor and theatrical sparkle, there's also a serious side providing insight into problems troubling teenagers for generations. There's memorable melodies, sophisticated rhythms and the polished slickness of modern pop music. The original production played to cheering sold out houses.
