Why See Rock of Ages?
Don't Stop Believin' - Rock Of Ages Returns!
Fans of Rock of Ages rejoice! The hit musical is returning to its original off-Broadway home for a strictly limited as it celebrates its tenth anniversary! With the original creative team at the helm (director Kristin Hanggi and choreographer Kelly Devine), the anthemic 80s musical is set to set New York a rocking once more.
Debuting at the New World Stages (where it is returning) in 2008, the head-banging jukebox tuner transferred to Broadway where it ran for a whopping 2,300 performances! Featuring songs like "The Final Countdown", "We Built This City" and "Don't Stop Believing", Rock of Ages became an instant fan favorite and has since enjoyed both national and international tours. In 2012 the musical was made into a feature-length film which starred Julianne Hough, Russel Brand, Alec Baldwin and Catherine Zeta-Jones!
What is Rock of Ages about?
The time: 1987. The place: West Hollywood's Sunset Trip. Amidst the tussle between hedonistic thrill seekers, a fed-up city planner and developers looking to turn the spot into a clean-living, money-making area, dreams still blossom - at least in the minds of Drew Boley and Sherrie Christian. A busboy at the legendary Bourbon Room, Drew has his sights set on becoming a rock star whilst new colleague and romantic interest Sherrie dreams of being an actor.
When they learn the Bourbon room is set to be demolished, they take matters into their own hands whilst Drew embraces his inner rock god, becoming Stacee Jaxx with every flaming lick. It's dirty, it's unapologetic - it's a coming of age tale with the kind of swagger that'll turn your parents' hair grey!

Cranston's wrenching performance stands on its own. In context, it's a terrifying reminder of how an all-too-human, anger-filled public figure, with access to a worldwide stage, can be mistaken for a god.

This is theatrical storytelling so assured and involving it's hard to imagine anyone not being mesmerized.
