Original ROCK OF AGES Broadway Cast Member Rejoins Company in New Role
BroadwayWorld has confirmed that original ROCK OF AGES Broadway cast member Mitchell Jarvis, who played Lonny when the show first opened, has rejoined the cast for its final weeks on the Great White Way as Stacee Jaxx. Jarvis succeeds YouTube star Chester See.
Jarvis is one of seven original 'ROCK' cast members who've returned to close out the show. Others include Constantine Maroulis, Adam Dannheisser, Paul Schoeffler, Andre Ward, Ericka Hunter and Michael Minarik.
The producers of the five-time Tony Award-nominated Rock of Ages announced recently that the production will play its final performance on Sunday, January 18, 2015 after 22 preview and 2,328 Broadway performances, solidifying its spot as the 27th longest running show in Broadway history.
In addition to being a bona fide hit on Broadway, Rock of Ages is currently rocking the Las Vegas Strip at The Venetian Resort; the open seas on Norwegian's cruise ship The Breakaway; and the open road on its third U.S. National Tour and first U.K. National Tour. The show was also a runaway success in Toronto, Australia, and London's West End, and has licensed productions in several additional countries, including Mexico, Sweden, Korea, Japan and The Philippines. In 2012, Rock of Ages hit the silver screen as a major motion picture starring Tom Cruise.
The music that ignited a generation is heating up Broadway in the five-time Tony Award-nominated musical Rock of Ages. The hilarious, tongue-in-cheek love story erupts into Broadway's Best Party, all to the sounds of such feel-good, sing-out-loud songs as "I Wanna Know What Love Is", "Every Rose Has Its Thorn," "Wanted Dead Or Alive," "Here I Go Again", "Don't Stop Believin" and more.
