Set in 1987 Los Angeles, Rock of Ages tells the story of a small-town girl and a city boy who meet on the Sunset Strip while pursuing their Hollywood dreams. When Drew and Sherrie meet, it's love at first sight, though their romance will face a series of challenges. The musical premiered in Los Angeles in 2005 where it ran for a limited engagement, followed by two successful runs at other venues in LA, and then a short run at the Flamingo in Las Vegas in 2006. It made its way to New York and had its Off-Broadway premiere at New World Stages in October 2008, and ran through January 2009. A few short months later, it premiered on Broadway, running until 2015, and had two North American Tours. It was nominated for five Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Musical (Constantine Maroulis), and Best Direction (Kristin Hanggi). Upon its closing in 2015, after 22 previews and 2,328 regular performances, Rock of Ages tied with Man of La Mancha as Broadway's 32nd-longest running show of all-time. In 2019, it was announced that Rock of Ages would celebrate its tenth anniversary by going on a North American Tour in the U.S. and Canada for the first time since 2011. An off-Broadway revival production premiered in June 2019 at New World Stages. Originally slated for a 16-week run, the show became an open-ended production on November of that year. It premiered on London's West End in 2013, had two UK National Tours. Productions ran across the world including Australia, Manila, South Africa, Mexico, and Germany!

The film version of Rock of Ages was released in 2012 from Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema. Directed by Adam Shankman (Hairspray) it had a star-studded cast, including Tom Cruise as Stacee Jaxx, Julianne Hough as Sherrie Christian, Diego Boneta as Drew Boley, along with Alec Baldwin, Russell Brand, Mary J. Blige, Bryan Cranston, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Paul Giamatti, and more! Constantine Maroulis, Broadway's original Drew, makes a cameo appearance in the film, as does Joel Hoekstra. The soundtrack was nominated for a Grammy Award.
