Photo Coverage: Maroulis, Bach and Frankel Host America's Hottest Rocker Mom Contest

Bethenny Frankel (Real Housewives of New York City) joined hard core rockers Sebastian Bach (Skid Row) and Tony Nominee Constantine Maroulis (American Idol, "ROCK OF AGES") - all who have or will appear as guest stars on IFC's hit comedy Z Rock - along with Z Rock cast members Paulie, David and Joey as judge and jury for the IFC hosted "America's Hottest Rocker Mom" contest, to celebrate season two of its uncensored, uncut, hit comedy Z Rock. Perfectly melding the series' dual "kids band by day/hard core rockers by night" storyline, the band set out to find America's rocking-est mom via a nationwide online contest.

Five finalists descended on Manhattan's Madison Square Park for a live, no-holds (leather pants and big hair included!) barred final event.

"ROCK OF AGES" is set in 1987 in L.A.'s most legendary rock club on the Sunset Strip, where a small-town girl meets a big-city dreamer and they fall in love to the greatest songs of the ‘80's. The musical is a hilarious feel-good love story told through the hit songs of iconic rockers Journey, Styx, REO Speedwagon, Foreigner, Pat Benatar, Whitesnake, and many more.

Following an extremely successful off-Broadway run and a bidding war over the film rights (which New Line Cinema won), "ROCK OF AGES" opened on Tuesday, April 7th, 2009 at Broadway's Brooks Atkinson Theatre to rave reviews and audience adoration. The show is written by Chris D'Arienzo (writer and director of the upcoming film "Barry Munday"), directed by Kristin Hanggi ("Bare," "Pussycat Dolls on the Sunset Strip") and choreographed by Kelly Devine ("Jersey Boys" - Associate Choreographer). Music supervision, arrangements and orchestrations are by Ethan Popp ("Tarzan," "Europe: We Will Rock You," "Mamma Mia"), with original arrangements by David Gibbs (Counting Crows).

Featured in The Cast are Constantine Maroulis, Amy Spanger, James Carpinello, Adam Dannheisser, Mitchell Jarvis, Michele Mais, Lauren Molina, Paul Schoeffler, Wesley Taylor, Ericka Hunter, Jeremy Jordan, Michael Minarik, Angel Reed, Bahiyah Sayyed-Gaines, Katherine Tokarz, Andre Ward, Savannah Wise, Tad Wilson and Jeremy Woodard.

Previews began on Tuesday, March 17, 2009. All tickets (including VIP Green Room and Premium Seats) can be purchased via Ticketmaster.com/ 212-307-4100 or in person at The Brooks Atkinson Box Office, 256 W. 47th Street.
