A ROCK ‘N’ ROLL MUSICAL ABOUT BIG DREAMS, BIG EGOS AND BIG HAIR!
Nominated for five Tony Awards®, including Best Musical, ROCK OF AGES captures the iconic era that was the big, bad 1980s. Amidst the madness, aspiring rock star (and resident toilet cleaner) Drew longs to take the stage as the next big thing at one of the Sunset Strip’s last epic venues — a place where rock god Stacee Jaxx commands the stage and groupies line up to turn their fantasies into reality. But the fairy tale is about to end when developers sweep into town with plans to turn the fabled club into just another shopping mall. Can Drew save the Strip before it’s too late AND win the affections of newcomer Sherri, fresh off the bus from Kansas? Only the music of hit bands Styx, Journey, Bon Jovi, Whitesnake and more hold the answer. You’ll hear favorites “I Wanna Know What Love Is,” “Final Countdown,” “Sister Christian” and so many more! This is one for the ages that will have you singing “Just Like Paradise.”
