A smaller town girl and the city boy meet about the Sunset Strip, while pursuing their The movies dreams.
In 1987, Sherrie Christian travels from Oklahoma to La with dreams of being a famous singer (“Sister Christian”/”Just Just like Paradise”). Passing by a well-liked nightclub called “The Bourbon Room”, Sherrie’s suitcase, containing her favorite files, is stolen. Drew Boley, who works at the Bourbon Room as a busboy, tries to catch the robber, but fails. He comforts Sherrie and, upon learning of her condition, he gets her a career at the Bourbon Room as being a waitress.
The club’s owner, Dennis Dupree, and his right-hand male, Lonny Barnett, arrange for Stacee Jaxx, a famous rock superstar who recently announced he can split from his wedding ring, Arsenal, to perform with them one last time at the Bourbon Room, hoping that the income will help them with unpaid taxes that are threatning the club. Upon learning of this kind of, Patricia Whitman the non secular conservative wife of Gran Mike Whitman, who wants revenge towards Jaxx for sleeping having her in college and never calling back, organizes her church to protest as you’re watching Bourbon Room, planning to shut these individuals down (“Hit Me With your Best Shot”). Meanwhile, Drew and Sherrie visit an used records shop, where they both confess their dreams to become famous (“Juke Box Hero”/”I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll”). Drew decides to produce a song for Sherrie. They later have to start a date at the Hollywood sign, where they slowly drop in love (“Waiting for the Girl Like You”).
At the night of the show, Jaxx’s manager, Paul Gill schedules a great interview between Jaxx and Constance Sack, a reporter for Rolling Stone magazine ahead of the concert. She mentions the gossip that he’s difficult to do business with and was actually kicked outside of Arsenal, but Jaxx claims his life is much more complicated than it appears (“Wanted Dead or even Alive”). He seduces her, and they’re about to have sex when one regarding his arrogant comments convinces her that it would be a mistake and leads to her to leave (“I Need to know What Love Is”).
Meanwhile, Dennis learns that their particular opening act has terminated, and Sherrie convinces him make use of Drew and his music group, The Wolfgang Von Colt. Drew confesses his feelings for Sherrie and so they kiss (“More as compared to Words”/”Heaven”). They perform “I Wanna Rock”, while a stressed Jaxx locations Sherrie and tells her to bring him a beer. She nervously tells them she’s a fan, and accidentally spills draught beer in his pants. Once Drew is done, he rushes backstage and finds Jaxx wearing a new pair associated with pants while telling Sherrie that will “this shouldn’t have happened”.
Mistakenly assuming they received sex, Drew breaks up using Sherrie while Jaxx works “Pour Some Sugar on Me”. Heartbroken, she quits her job at the Bourbon Room and leaves. He decides to pursue her, but is stopped by means of Gill, who watched Wolfgang Von Colt’s performance and believes he can make Drew famous. Drew agrees and simply leaves with Gill, who also takes the amount of money raised by the show from Dennis, leaving him more endebted than before.
