Featuring the Music of The Violent Femmes
Book by Gregory Victor and Matt Wiliams
Music Direction by Debra Barsha
Harley is cast as "Hans Gomez" in the first reading of a new musical featuring the songs of the Violent Femmes, one of the most popular alternative rock bands of the 80s.
Hitting the Ground is about a group of strangers -- a drug-addicted rocker, a beauty queen with a past, a comedian, a war-torn solder and a Rolling Stone reporter about to get the story of his life -- who set out on a USO tour together. Instead, they share an unexpected adventure in Appalachia. As the search planes circle, unforeseen love is discovered, sides are taken, guns are drawn, moonshine flows and a flood of biblical proportions threatens to wash everything and everyone down the mountain.
