ROCK OF AGES

Genre: Musical
Featuring 80s Rock Hits by Journey, Bon Jovi, Styx, Reo Speedwagon, Pat Benatar & more

ROCK OF AGES takes audiences on a musical trip with a story set to blazing hits from iconic rockers such as Journey, Bon Jovi, Styx, Reo Speedwagon, Pat Benatar, Twisted Sister, Poison, Asia, Whitesnake and many more. Crowds and critics agree – ROCK OF AGES is “crazy fun,” writes the Associated Press, “a nonstop party laden with sexy choreography, energetic performances and an on stage band that totally rocks the house.” The Star Ledger says, “tons of retro fun for anybody loving those bygone times of big hair and even bigger power chords,” while Variety lauds the show “a legitimate artistic achievement” and the New York Post proclaims “based on the rapturous response that greeted nearly every number, Rock of Ages may do for '80s rock what Mamma Mia! did for ABBA.”

Written by Chris D’Arienzo (Film: Barry Munday) and directed by Kristin Hanggi (Bare, Pussycat Dolls on the Sunset Strip), ROCK OF AGES is fueled by high-octane 80s rock – from the anthems that defined an era to the power ballads that lit up arenas everywhere. A theatrical event inspired by the unforgettable rock sounds and the mega-bands that dominated the airwaves for more than a decade, ROCK OF AGES features big chords, big dreams and big hair.

The scene is set in the late 1980s and the final countdown is on for a legendary Hollywood rock club facing its demise at the hands of eager developers. When a young rocker hungry for his big break and a small town girl chasing her dreams land on the scene at this infamous venue, how far will ambition drive them? And will it be lights out for the club and all the regulars and rockers who have made it their home?
