Billed as a pro wrestling event that happens to be an immersive Pro- Wrestling Rock Musical, "The Last Match" tells the story of Ben Vengeance - for years professional wrestling's biggest star - on the night of his last match. With weight on his shoulders - his legacy, the future of the wrestling organization, and the prospects of a peaceful retirement with his wife, Jenny, a wrestling star in her own right - the evening promises to be anything but a quiet ride off into the sunset. "The Last Match", just like the world of pro wrestling, is chock full of colorful, bombastic entertainment. Mixing theater, rock, and live wrestling, this isn't your grandparent's typical musical ... unless your grandparents are total rockstars!
