WOOD­VALE res­i­dent Alyssa Bur­ton is tak­ing a jour­ney through the world of break-ups, make-ups and mu­sic ob­ses­sion next month as she takes to stage in the mu­si­cal ver­sion of High Fi­delity.

Based on the book by Nick Hornby and di­rected by Kris­ten TwynamPerkins at Ro­ley­stone Theatre, the show ex­plores love, life and the im­por­tance mu­sic plays as the sound­track to both.

The story fol­lows Rob Gor­don, a Brook­lyn record shop owner in his 30s who is ob­sessed with mak­ing top five lists for ev­ery­thing and al­ways ob­serv­ing, rather than par­tic­i­pat­ing, in life.

High Fi­delity was also a 2000 film fea­tur­ing John Cu­sack and Jack Black.

Alyssa Bur­ton, Natalie Cox and Emily Botje in HighFidelity.
