"This 1980s-set work plays like a mixtape of comedy and drama...an entertaining tribute to the power of popular music." -- The Detroit Free Press

A love letter to the Clash, the Cure, and the Smiths. Set in 1986, on the night rock star Owen Lovejoy is ready to put a sudden and unannounced end to his fictional alter ego, Caesar Moon, he is surprised by a mysterious teenage girl who sneaks into his dressing room. Cece, whose life’s soundtracks are the songs of Caesar Moon, is arguably his biggest fan, and she's there to change their lives.

"Young Americans is a story that can appeal to a broad audience. Set in 1986, older patrons will grab hold of the many references to music from their coming of age time, and younger audience members (teens recommended) should be able to relate to the notion that all that glitters is not gold, especially if it is in the form of bling jewelry, fame and money." -- Encore Michigan
