Rock of Ages Kicks Off Broadway Under the Stars
2019-05-01 CATEGORY: Broadway
Are you ready to rock? First appearing on Broadway in 2009, Rock of Ages celebrates its 10th anniversary in 2019 with a tour that turns up the volume to ten, including a stop in Kansas City May 31-June 2, before heading back to the Great White Way for a limited engagement this summer. There’s no better way to open the exciting 2019 AdventHealth Broadway Series under the stars than with this rock concert-musical hybrid!
Set on the Sunset Strip in the 1980s, Rock of Ages tells the story of one of the last true rock ‘n’ roll venues in Hollywood—The Bourbon Room. When two developers come in and want to shutter the club in favor of a new project, these rock stars must prove that their venue should be spared. With a dynamic cast and cheeky humor, plus jukebox hits of iconic bands like Styx, Poison, Twisted Sister and more, the hit Broadway musical Rock of Ages is Broadway’s Best Party.
Prior to playing its original Broadway run, Rock of Ages premiered in Los Angeles at King King—a club on Hollywood Boulevard. After a successful run in LA, it moved to Las Vegas and then to New York City, before officially taking Broadway by storm in 2009. The original production was nominated for five Tony Awards, including Best Musical, this show has gone on to become a global phenomenon, capturing the iconic era that was the big bad 1980s Hollywood.
