Rock of Ages Information
Featuring the soundtrack to the eighties era, the Broadway jukebox musical Rock of Ages is taking its run on the road. The musical visits the romance between a small town girl and the big city rocker she fell in love with on LAâ€™s Sunset Strip in 1987, featuring the songs that sparked their story. The arena-rock love story told through the mind-blowing, face-melting hits of Journey, Styx, Reo Speedwagon, Pat Benatar, Twisted Sister, Poison, Asia, Foreigner and more. The two love-struck dreamers navigate the seedy world that accompanies hair-metal- drugs and mullets for example- while in the process discovering themselves and falling head over heels for each other.
The New York Times says of Rock of Ages: â€œthe attractionsâ€¦ extend well beyond the extensions- written with winky wit by Chris Dâ€™Arienzo, directed with zest by Kristin Hanggi, sung with scorching heat by a spirited cast, and featuring a towering stack of heavy-rotation favorites from the glory yearsâ€. The Tony-nominated star Constantine Maroulis, who got his start as a top-ten contestant on American Idol in 2005, will be a part of the touring cast playing the lead role, Drew. The tour kicks off mid-September in Chicago, playing at Bostonâ€™s Colonial Theater from October 5th to the 17th.
