Time Out says
Based on the true story of a group of Evanston teenagers who formed a punk rock band in the early ’80s, Verböten examines how the simple act of picking up an instrument can become an escape from a difficult home life and a crucial means of self-expression. Local musician Jason Narucy—who played in the original incarnation of Verböten when he was just 11 years old—penned the songs for this musical, writing fiery punk anthems for its young protagonists and ’60s- and ’70s-rock numbers for the adult characters. Filled with relatable teenage angst and energetic live performances, Verböten might just inspire you to make some music of your own.
