ROCK OF AGES
Book by Chris D’Arienzo
Arrangements and Orchestrations by Ethan Popp
Direction by Janie Scott
Music Direction by Lauren Bevilacqua
Choreography by Zendrex Llado
We’re going back to a sexier time - The Reagan Era - and the party has been raging hard in Hollywood. Aqua net, Lycra, lace, and liquor flow freely at one of the Sunset Strip’s last legendary rock venues. Amidst the madness, aspiring rock star (and perspiring janitor) Drew, a boy from South Detroit, longs to become the next Bon Jovi. He gets his chance, but not before falling for a small town girl, Sherrie. But all good times must come to an end…or must they? One of the longest running shows in recent Broadway history, the Tony nominated ROCK OF AGES features 28 eyebrow-scorching hits from Styx, Poison, and many other monster bands of the 80’s.
“A seriously silly, absurdly enjoyable arena-rock musical… I never would have guessed that wine coolers could age this well!”
- The New York Times
