A musical tale of hitchhiking coast-to-coast in 1974, life was strange, but the music was good. It's hard to catch the wind, the freedom of the highway, and the psychedelic insanity that was the 1970’s.
Ellen Kaye, whose parents owned the iconic NYC restaurant, The Russian Tea Room (1947-1996), ran away from home in 1974 at age 14 and hitchhiked 7,500 miles across America. Upon her return to NYC, though not an addict, she was exiled to Phoenix House, a drug rehabilitation program. Through humor, wit and song she tackles race relations, gender inequality, and class struggle during the 1970’s, directly speaking to our current times. The Dixon Place Lounge is open before and after the show, and you can bring your drink in the theater!
