It’s New Years Eve, 1999. With the entire country caught up in “Y2K Paranoia”, Chazz Goodhart decides it’s the perfect opportunity to escape his rural hometown of Redfield, Virginia. He leaves behind his Meth-dealing mother, and hops a Greyhound bus in hopes of getting into the Party Of The Century: “The Y2K Bootyquake Bash” at The Groove Factory. Despite the assault on New York City’s Clubland and the politically charged “War on Designer Drugs”, D.J. Willy D. Vinyl has managed to keep his club pumping nightly, and the countdown to the Millennium promises to be a life-changing event. Set to an original score of pulsating electronic pop music, The Groove Factory is an exciting new musical theater experience!
