Photo Coverage: Dee Snider Debuts in ROCK OF AGES - Curtain Call

Frontman for the 80's sensation Twisted Sister, Dee Snider, will make his Broadway debut in the role of "Dennis" in ROCK OF AGES for an 11-week limited run, October 11- December 24, 2010 at The Brooks Atkinson Theatre (256 West 47th Street). BroadwayWorld was there to welcome Snider to the show!

While perhaps best known as the lead singer of 80's sensation, Twisted Sister, Dee Snider can also claim credit as the writer of their hits 'I Wanna Rock' and 'We're Not Gonna Take It', both of which are featured in ROCK OF AGES. His film acting credits include the cult horror movie classic StrangeLand, which he also wrote, and VH1's "Warning: Parental Advisory," with Jason Priestley and Mariel Hemingway. Amongst his many television appearances, he starred in CMT's hit reality show "Gone Country" and this summer saw the launch of his own A&E reality show "Growing Up Twisted." Dee has been doing radio in various forms for well over a decade now and his nationally syndicated radio show 'House of Hair' is heard on more than 200 stations in North America. 

Beginning on Tuesday, October 19, 2010, Dee Snider will host post-show "Rock Senate Hearings," which will occur every Tuesday night and feature Q & A's with special guests and ROA stars. Mick Jones, founder of the rock band Foreigner and author of the smash hit song, ‘I Want to Know What Love Is,' which is featured in ROCK OF AGES, will kick off the "Hearings" with Snider on October 19. Special guests will be announced on ROA's social media sites each week.
