Rock of Ages
Rock of Ages features the drama and comedy of tumultuous romances and classic 80s rock anthems from famous glam metal bands of that decade including Styx, Journey, Bon Jovi, Pat Benatar, Twisted Sister, and Poison.
“Rock of Ages is a jukebox musical that will take audiences back to the 80s with well-known rock tunes like “Don’t Stop Believin’,” “Here I Go Again,” and “I Wanna Know What Love Is,” says Mark Danni, TZ's founding artistic director. “The story is a rock ‘n roll romance between a small-town wannabe actress from Kansas and a city boy who wants to be a rock star, and their yearnings for stardom in the City of Angels.”
The musical is set in The Bourbon Room, a nightclub on Los Angeles’s Sunset Strip under threat of demolition by a pair of real estate developers who want to reform the Strip’s “sex, drugs and rock ‘n roll” lifestyle. Amid the campaign to save the nightclub, the characters couple and uncouple before finding their surprising destinies, all while TheatreZone’s five-piece band performs the biggest hits of the era.
