The Engineer with a Worried Mind

By Emily Louise Perkins

Soft Rockstar

A new play by Emily Louise Perkins

Soft Rockstar centers around six souls in 1970’s Harlem who, after traumatic events in their lives, struggle to overcome subsequent crippling stagnation and pursue their work. In a night club The Half Note, a talent manager and his talent wash up, a writer can’t write, a young scientist won’t go back to school, a rockstar comes home, and a Southern housewife steals all their money.  In a city where music is a location and doorways are sounds, Soft Rockstar begs the question; Does goodness matter? (And why did Dylan cover his beautiful face?)
