Based on the novel by Nick Hornby that launched John Cusack’s second act as a vinyl-loving antihero, the 2006 Broadway show High Fidelity: The Musical has found its true home in River West's Refuge Records. The pop-up setting, bedecked with treasure-filled record crates, brings Championship Vinyl to life, and the cast of young, fiery talent lifts Tom Kitt’s score and Amanda Green’s lyrics to new levels of rock (David Lindsay-Abaire wrote the book). As lovesick narcissist Rob, Max DeTogne adorably waxes philosophic about the art of the perfect mixtape and his “Desert Island Top 5 Break-Ups” list. Rob might be miserable because he listens to pop music, but listening to him and the ever-optimistic “musical moron twins” Barry (Nick Druzbanski) and Dick (Stephen Garrett) makes you want to raise your lighter for these lovable underdogs. —Marissa Oberlander
