CC Sabathia to Make Stage Debut in ROCK OF AGES for 'Yankees Night'

Rock of Ages

ROCK OF AGES will host special "Yankees Night" at New World Stages on Wednesday, July 31 at 8PM, to benefit the Carlos Beltran Foundation.

Six-time All-Star CC Sabathia will make his stage debut in a one-night-only cameo in the musical's 10th Anniversary production, followed by a special curtain call dedication by current and former Yankee players.

Tickets to the performance-only are $109 (mezzanine level) and $179 (orchestra level). Select VIP Ticket Packages are also available, which include prime seating at the show and access to an exclusive post-show reception with Yankees players and Rock of Ages cast members. All tickets are available at www.rockofagesmusical.com.

A champion of youth sports and education, nine-time All-Star and former Yankee Carlos Beltran set up his non-profit organization The Carlos Beltran Foundation to support community organizations that provide quality education and sports programs for underserved youth.

Through years of hard work and generous contributions, Beltran and his wife Jessica were able to open The Carlos Beltran Academy in Puerto Rico, which provides a dynamic learning experience where young people can develop and enhance their athletic gifts and strive for academic excellence in preparation for leading responsible and productive lives as compassionate global citizens, and to empower youth to achieve their dreams through sports and education.

The 10th Anniversary Production of Rock of Ages is now playing for a limited engagement at New World Stages (340 W 50th St). Nominated for five Tony Awards during its record-breaking Broadway run, this anniversary engagement of the musical plays a 16-week runthrough Sunday, October 6, 2019.

ROCK OF AGES opened on Broadway on April 7, 2009, for a monumental six-year run of 2,350 performances, carving the musical a spot in the Broadway history books as one of the Top 30 Longest-running Shows of All Time.

The 10th Anniversary cast includes CJ Eldred (Desperate Measures) as Drew and Kirsten Scott (Jersey Boys) as Sherrie, with original Broadway cast member Mitchell Jarvis (Gettin' the Band Back Together) and Katie Webber (Wicked) reprising their roles of Lonny and Waitress #1, respectively.
