Boston's First Spin of "High Fidelity"

Nick Hornby's best-selling novel, 'High Fidelity' struck a chord with rock-obsessed readers when it came out in 1995. It captured the world of a musty, used-record store and exposed the inner lives of the crabby, music snobs who work there.

Now this tale of top 5 lists and failed romance is headed for the glitz and glare of Broadway as a musical. The production is in its pre-Broadway run in Boston, where WBUR's Arts and Culture reporter Andrea Shea found out what happens when big theater and underground vinyl collide.
