Résumé

Chad, un rocker en blouson noir, amoureux de motos, s'arrête dans le garage de la ville parce qu'il doit réparer la sienne. Là Nathalie, la mécanicienne (sans doute une allusion à Natalie Wood), tombe sous le charme mais Chad la calme en lui disant qu'il a déjà eu une flopée de femmes mais qu'il ne prend la route qu'avec des hommes. Natalie cache ses cheveux sous un chapeau, se badigeonne le visage d'huile de moteur pour simuler une barbe, se transformant en "Ed". Finalement, Chad tombera amoureux de Ed.

Quelques remarques

Instrumentation
The original Broadway production had fifteen musicians, including the musical director and associate conductor. The original production was scored for two keyboards, two guitars, electric bass, drums, percussion, four woodwinds, three trumpets, and trombone. The first keyboard part was played by the conductor and the second keyboard part also doubled on organ. The first woodwind part doubled on piccolo, flute, clarinet, and alto sax; the second on flute, clarinet, and alto sax; the third on clarinet and tenor sax; the fourth on bass clarinet and baritone sax. There were also three trumpets where the first trumpet is the lead trumpet. The trumpets also doubled on flugelhorn.

The orchestration that is under the current license is based on the national tour version; there are only twelve musicians. The percussion part is removed, there are now three woodwind parts, and two trumpets. The rest remain the same. This time the first woodwind part doubles on flute and alto sax; the second on clarinet and tenor sax; the third on bass clarinet and baritone sax.
