Celebrating their show's fifth anniversary on stage, the cast of Broadway's Rock of Ages performed a special medley of songs on The Today Show plaza this morning.

ROCK OF AGES is one of the most 'social' experiences on Broadway - with drink service directly to the seats, and audience members who sing along to their favorite hits of the 80s night after night, and keep coming back for more. As a toast to its incredible network of fans, the show kicks off a month-long celebration of that 'social' experience for its fifth anniversary, with former Facebook executive and New York Times best-selling author Randi Zuckerberg joining the cast as Regina from March 14-30, 2014 (#RandiRocks). The party continues through April 14 with numerous social media contests and special ticket offers.
ROCK OF AGES 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 Calveri as "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.
