The smash hit musical opened on Broadway on Tuesday, April 7, 2009 and played its final performance at The Brooks Atkinson Theatre on Sunday, January 9, 2011 before re-opening at The Helen Hayes Theatre on March 24, 2011. Now in its fifth year on Broadway, Rock of Ages continues to sell out performances at the Helen Hayes Theater, consistently making the Broadway Top 10 for capacity, average ticket price and percentage of gross potential week after week.
The music that ignited a generation is heating up Broadway in Rock of Ages. The classic rock love story of the decade erupts into Broadway's Best Party, all to the sounds of such feel-good, sing-out-loud songs as "Every Rose Has Its Thorn", "I Wanna Know What Love Is", "Here I Go Again", "Don't Stop Believin" and more.
ROCK OF AGES currently stars a "Supergroup" of performers including Kate Rockwell as "Sherrie," Aaron C. Finley as "Drew," Joey Calverias "Stacee Jaxx," Genson Blimline as "Lonny," Adam Dannheisser (Original Broadway Cast member) as "Dennis," Cody Scott Lancaster as "Franz," Josephine Rose Roberts as "Regina," Paul Schoeffler (Original Broadway Cast member) as "Hertz," and Teresa Stanley as "Justice." Rounding out the cast are Tessa Alves, Andrew Call, Cristy Candler, Tony LePage, Michael Minarik (Original Broadway Cast member),Cassie Silva, Andre Ward (Original Broadway Cast member) and Neka Zang.
In addition to being a bona fide Broadway hit musical - which in its record-breaking fourth year on Broadway celebrated its one-millionth customer, its 1500th performance, seven Box Office Records, and its spot in the Top 50 Longest-Running Broadway Shows in History - Rock of Ages is currently rocking the Garrick Theatre in London's West End; the Venetian Resort on the Las Vegas Strip; the open seas on Norwegian's newest cruise ship, The Breakaway; and the open road on its Second U.S. National Tour. Rock of Ages also hit the silver screen in 2012 as a major motion picture starring Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin, Russell Brand and Catherine Zeta-Jones. Furthermore, the show was a runaway success in Toronto, Australia, and its 60-city First National Tour, and has licensed productions in several additional countries, including Sweden, Korea and Japan.
