“A completely absurd and yet chillingly real satirization of the pop world” – Pitchfork

Would you sell your soul for rock ‘n’ roll? This wonderfully bizarre rock opera is loosely based on Faust and The Phantom of the Opera. Starring the legendary Paul Williams, and featuring an Oscar-nominated soundtrack that Williams also created. In it, a gifted rock composer plots revenge after a devious record producer (Williams) steals both his music and his girl.
