Beehive Just Gets Better

They lined up 20 years ago outside the Howard St. Tavern, waiting to hear Beehive bring back 1960s rock n’ roll. And they packed The Waiting Room on Maple Street  200-strong Saturday to hear the same songs.

Never have I expected so much from an award-winning drama and yet found it exceeding the highest expectations. It has been...

The title, Rooms: a Rock Romance, gives you a good idea of the genre, but what about the “Rooms”?  One hint comes from this comparison of the couple, a romancing pair of musicians:
“She longs to see every room in the world — he longs to stay in his.”

She’s bubbly ambitious Monica and he’s rumpled laidback Ian, two Scottish rockers starting in Glasgow in the 1970s. They’re played by two UNL students, Jaime...
