Rock of Ages
By Chris D’Arienzo
Arrangements and Orchestrations by Ethan Popp
“A seriously silly, absurdly enjoyable arena-rock musical…the performances blend sincere conviction and knowing parody.” – New York Times
“Rock of Ages is the power-ballad decade in all its glory, tricked out with big perms, bigger dreams, and the kind of operatic ecstasy you read about only in bathroom stalls.” –Entertainment Weekly
Nominated for Five Tony Awards Including Best Musical!
It’s the tail end of the big, bad 1980s in Hollywood and the party
has been raging hard. Aqua Net hair spray, Lycra, lace, and liquor
flow freely at one of the Sunset Strip’s last legendary venues,
a place where sex machine Stacee Jaxx takes the stage and
scantily clad groupies line up to turn their fantasies into reality.
Amidst the madness, Drew (an aspiring rock star and resident
toilet cleaner) longs to take the stage as the next big thing. Drew
also longs for small-town girl Sherri, who is fresh off the bus from
Kansas with stars in her eyes. But the rock and roll fairy tale is
about to end when German developers sweep into town with
plans to turn the fabled Sunset Strip into just another capitalist
strip mall. Can Drew, Sherri and the gang save the strip, and
themselves, before it’s too late?
ROCK OF AGES takes you back to the hard rock era of big bands
with big egos playing big guitar solos and sporting even bigger hair!
This Tony Award-nominated Broadway musical features the hits
of bands including Night Ranger, REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar,
Twisted Sister, Styx, Journey, Bon Jovi, Whitesnake and more.
