It’s 1993 and mixtapes are the language of love. Set in the American heartland during the summer between high school and whatever comes next, college-bound jock Mike and self-assured but aimless Will find themselves drawn to each other. Their rush of first love full of excitement, confusion, and passion, forges an unlikely bond neither were expecting. Told to the power-pop of Matthew Sweet’s rock album, Girlfriend is a musical about the terror and thrill of discovering yourself, and the life you want to lead.
