Rock opera 'The Fix' opening in Long Beach April 24

The Fix – The West Coast premiere of a hard-boiled, darkly comic rock musical about the American political machine. A popular presidential candidate is dead, and his widow thrusts their son into the political spotlight. Her maniacal scheming is matched by that of her crippled brother-in-law, who will stop at nothing to see the boy elected. Together, the three of them make up one of the most dysfunctional almost-first families this side of real life Washington politics. Nominated for London’s 1998 Olivier Award for Best New Musical.
