Rock of Ages
Rock of Ages takes you back to the time of bands with big egos, big guitar solos and even bigger hair! Featuring the music of hit bands including REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar, Twisted Sister, Bon Jovi, Styx, and Journey, this hit musical was nominated for five Tony Awards® including Best Musical.
Set at the end of the 1980s in one of the Sunset Strip’s last legendary venues, a place where superstar Stacee Jaxx takes the stage and groupies line up to turn their fantasies into reality. Amidst the madness, aspiring rock star — and resident toilet cleaner — Drew longs to take the stage as the next big thing. He falls for Sherri, a small-town girl, fresh off the bus from Kansas with stars in her eyes. But the rock and roll fairytale is about to end when developers sweep into town with plans to turn the fabled Strip into just another strip mall. Can Drew, Sherri, and the gang save the strip and themselves before it's too late?
