WESTON - A World Premiere of a Rock 'n Roll Musical, Analog & Vinyl, opens June 26 on the Weston Playhouse Stage. Combining the sexual combustibility of Kiss Me, Kate, the Faustian bargaining of Damn Yankees, and the tuneful retro score of Grease, Broadway composer Paul Gordon's latest work, Analog and Vinyl, kicks off the Weston Playhouse's 2014 Summer theatre season with a bang - running from June 26-July 12.

Set in a vintage record shop, the musical comedy follows struggling store-owner Harrison and his volunteer employee Rodeo Girl, when a customer with unusual powers makes them an offer they can hardly refuse. It's a show for those who romanticize about the days when one's album collection was a prized possession, and when relationships developed without digital distraction.

The production stars Sarah Stiles as Rodeo Girl (B'way: Avenue Q and Spelling Bee,) Preston Sadleir as Harrison (upcoming B'way production of Titanic,) and Beth Glover as the mysterious stranger (an award-winning regional and Off-Broadway actress and comedienne.) The performers are backed up by a full orchestra of New York-based musicians.

Analog and Vinyl runs June 26 through July 12 at the Weston Playhouse, on the Village Green (12 Park Street, Weston. ) Show times are Tuesdays-Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., Wednesdays and Saturdays at 2 p.m, and Sundays at 3 p.m. The show runs 80 minutes with no intermission. Pre-show dinner is available at the Playhouse in the room with the view - the Cafe at the Falls.
