Vampire Weekend’s Rostam Batmanglij to Score Broadway’s This Is Our Youth
Rostam Batmanglij of Vampire Weekend will provide the score for Broadway’s forthcoming This Is Our Youth starring Michael Cera, Keiran Culkin and Tavi Gevinson. Batmanglij has had a hand in producing all of Vampire Weekend’s albums, however this will be his first Broadway score.
The Kenneth Lonergan production follows three rebellious college students in the ’80s as they struggle to find their place in society. The Arrested Development star Cera plays Warren, a 17-year-old who has just stolen $15,000 from his family. Culkin potrays his drug dealer, Dennis, while Gevinson will play Jessica, an ambitious fashion designer.
The play is scheduled to open on June 18 in Chicago and will hit Broadway on September 11.
