He's Coming Home! Constantine Maroulis Will Return to His Tony-Nominated Role in ROCK OF AGES

In what's shaping up to be a season of epic homecomings, Tony Award nominee and "American Idol" finalist Constantine Maroulis returns to the smash hit musical ROCK OF AGES.

Tony Award nominee and "American Idol" finalist Constantine Maroulis returns to the smash hit musical Rock of Ages as Drew on Monday, August 4, 2014 for a limited 12-week engagement through October 26, 2014. The five-time Tony Award nominated musical Rock of Ages - which recently celebrated its fifth anniversary on Broadway, and its spot in the Top 30 Longest-Running Broadway Shows in History - continues to offer Broadway's Best Party eight times a week at the Helen Hayes Theatre, 240 West 44th Street.

He writes: "Before anyone ever cared where I would perform, I was a kid from Rock of Ages. It's where I walked. It's where I ran. It's where I cried. It's where I bled. It holds a special place in my heart. People there have seen me grow up. I sometimes feel like I'm their son. Their passion can be overwhelming. But it drives me. I want to give them hope when I can. I want to inspire them when I can. My relationship with Rock of Ages is bigger than Broadway. I didn't realize that four years ago. I do now. I'm ready to accept the challenge. I'm coming home."

An original Broadway, Off-Broadway and First National Tour cast member, Maroulis played Drew in Rock of Ages for three consecutive years and received universal critical acclaim. When the show first opened, Rolling Stone said, "Rock of Ages has found a perfect lead in Maroulis," and so - like the Brat Pack, or Jane Fonda and leotards - some things are meant for each other.

CONSTANTINE MAROULIS received a Best Actor Tony nomination and a Drama League Award nomination for his performance in Broadway's Rock of Ages. He made his Broadway debut in the Tony-Nominated production of The Wedding Singer and most recently starred in the dual title role of the first Broadway revival of Jekyll & Hyde and its National Tour, for which he received a Drama League Award Nomination for Distinguished Performance. Additional theater credits include Roger in the national tour of RENT and the critically acclaimed Off-Broadway production of Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris. Constantine was a finalist on the fourth season of "American Idol" and later a series regular on the CBS daytime drama The Bold and The Beautiful, which featured original songs from his debut album "Constantine," released on his own label, Sixth Place Records. Other television credits include Unforgettable, Law & Order, The Tonight Show, America's Got Talent, Dancing with the Stars, The Today Show, Good Morning America, Conan, Ellen, Regis & Kelly, MTV and many more. Between theater and television appearances, Constantine continues to hit the studio to record new music on his label and tours as a guest star with the popular band Jessie's Girl, playing sold out concerts across the northeast. Constantine graduated from the Boston Conservatory and apprenticed at The Williamstown Theatre Festival.

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.

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 transferring to The Helen Hayes Theatre on March 24, 2011. Entering its sixth year on Broadway,ROCK OF AGES has been seen on Broadway by over 1.3 million people, grossed over $116 million, broken the Box Office Record at the Helen Hayes Theatre over 10 times and continues to sell out performances and consistently make the Broadway Top 10 for capacity, average ticket price and percentage of gross potential week after week.

ROCK OF AGES currently stars a "Supergroup" of performers including Carrie St. Louis 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 Andrew Call, Cristy Candler, Alyssa Herrera, Tony LePage, Michael Minarik (Original Broadway Cast member), Rebecca Riker, Andre Ward (Original Broadway Cast member) and Katie Webber.

In addition to being a bona fide Broadway hit musical, Rock of Ages is currently rocking 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 Third U.S. National Tour. Rock of Agesalso 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, London and its 60-city First National Tour, and has licensed productions in several additional countries, including Sweden, Korea and Japan.

ROCK OF AGES is produced on Broadway and worldwide by Matthew Weaver, Michael Cohl and Jonathan Linden/S2BN Entertainment, in addition to Carl Levin, Jeff Davis, Barry Habib, Scott Prisand, Reagan Silber, Relativity Media, Janet Billig Rich and Hillary Weaver.
