• About Fame, Jr.
Set during the last years of New York City's celebrated High School for the Performing Arts on 46th Street (1980-1984), Fame, Jr. is the bittersweet but ultimately inspiring story of a diverse group of students as they commit to four years of grueling artistic and academic work. With candor, humor and insight, the show explores the issues that confront many young people today. The play’s lyrics are by Jacques Levy, Fame, Jr. with music by Steve Margoshes. It was conceived and developed by David De Silva and is based on the book by José Fernandez.
“With the success of last year’s teen production, Zombie Prom, it was clear that we needed to continue doing a teen show. Fame, Jr. is a great choice as it is about teens who love to sing, dance and act,” said Jane Peterson, Director of Marketing for the FAC. “Everyone will enjoy the high-energy, contemporary music in this fun-filled musical.”
