Five-time Tony Award-nominated Rock of Ages just welcomed "Big Brother" star Frankie J. Grande in his return to Broadway in the smash-hit musical, beginning last night, November 10, 2014. Grande stars in the role of "Franz" - the free-spirited son of German developer Hertz Klineman, who threatens to tear down the Sunset Strip - through January 18, 2015. Click here to catch a video roundup of his past performances!

BroadwayWorld was there for his first curtain call and you can check out photos below!

Frankie J. Grande is an actor, dancer, singer, producer and YouTube personality who began his career on stage in 2007 in the Broadway production ofMamma Mia! In addition to performing, he has produced Broadway plays and musicals such as Hamlet starring Jude Law, La Bête starring David Hyde Pierce and Born Yesterday starring Jim Belushi. Most recently seen on season 16 of the hit CBS reality series "Big Brother," Grande's other performing credits include the 2014 Off-Broadway revival of Pageant; regional productions of Crazy For You ("Bobby"), George M! and A Chorus Line; and cabaret acts throughout NYC, including Birdland Jazz Club, 54 Below, and the Laurie Beechman Theatre headlining his own show Living La Vida Grande. Grande is a founding member of the charity 'Broadway in South Africa', a global arts outreach group, and in 2014 was honored by buildOn with the Global Impact Award for his work building a school in a rural village in Malawi.

Original Tony Award-nominated star Constantine Maroulis has extended his return engagement as "Drew" through January 18, 2015 and Lauren Zakrin (Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812) also recently joined the company, making her Broadway debut in the lead role of "Sherrie" as of November 3. Award-winning YouTube sensation Chester See also joined the cast as "Stacee Jaxx" late last month.
