ROCK OF AGES Returns to Providence Performing Arts Center Tonight
In 1987 on the Sunset Strip, a small-town girl met a big-city dreamer - and in L.A.'s most legendary rock club, they fell in love to the greatest songs of the '80s. It's Rock of Ages, 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. This five-time Tony nominated musical, which inspired the star-studded motion picture, is rockin' its way back to the Providence Performing Arts Center (PPAC) for one night only, tonight, January 29, 2104 at 7:30P.
ROCK OF AGES is sponsored in Providence by McLaughlin & Moran.
