Set during the last years of New York City’s celebrated High School for the Performing Arts on 46th Street (1980–1984), Fame is the bittersweet but ultimately inspiring story of a diverse group of students as they commit to four years of gruelling artistic and academic work. With candour, humour, and insight, the show explores the issues that confront many young people today: issues of prejudice, identity, self-worth, literacy, sexuality, substance abuse, and perseverance.
