Rock of Ages takes you back to the time of big bands with big egos playing big guitar solos and sporting even bigger hair! This Tony Award-nominated Broadway musical has a book by Chris D'Arienzo and features the hits of bands including Night Ranger, REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar, Twisted Sister, and more.

It's the tail end of the big, bad 1980s in Hollywood, and the party has been raging hard. Aqua Net, Lycra, lace, and liquor flow freely at one of the Sunset Strips' last legendary venues, a place where sex machine Stacee Jaxx takes the stage and scantily clad groupies line up to turn their fantasies into reality. Amidst the madness, aspiring rock star (and resident toilet cleaner) Drew longs to take the stage as the next big thing (and longs for small-town girl Sherri, fresh off the bus from Kansas with stars in her eyes). But the rock 'n' roll fairy tale is about to end when German developers sweep into town with plans to turn the fabled Strip into just another capitalist strip mall. Can Drew, Sherri, and the gang save the strip - and themselves - before it's too late? Only the music of hit bands Styx, Journey, Bon Jovi, Whitesnake, and more hold the answer.

"What better way to kick off Spring in Long Island than with the hair band celebration, the Tony Award-nominated musical Rock of Ages. Especially with the amazing cast and creative team we have assembled to continue the party we have going on at the Argyle Theatre this season." Argyle Theatre's Artistic Director, Evan Pappas.
