This is what it sounds like… When Doves Cry.  Feel the electricity of the inimitable maestro Prince as he plies his charisma, unbelievable stage presence, and musical genius into a modern musical of epic 80s proportions. A victim of his own anger, the Kid is a Minneapolis musician on the rise with his band, the Revolution, escaping a tumultuous home life through music. While trying to avoid making the same mistakes as his truculent father, the Kid navigates the club scene and a rocky relationship with a captivating singer, Apollonia. But another musician, Morris, looks to steal the Kid’s spotlight — and his girl. So purify yourself in the waters of Lake Minnetonka, grab your girl group members, and boogie on down to Vidiots to bask in this musical majesty.
