Rock Of Ages : About The Show
Rock of Ages is much more than a revue of Classic Rock songs, it is a moving narration of what happens when dreams meet reality. The musical has been one of the longest running shows on Broadway and this production is a celebration of the 10th Anniversary of the original production. It has several Tony Award nominations but more than that, it has been running full house on every tour!
The show is written by Chris D’Arienzo who has created an engaging story that twists and turns in giving us a glimpse of life in Hollywood in the 80s. The spotlight is ofcourse on the iconic soundtrack that includes songs from bands like Twisted Sister, Extreme, Foreigner, Mr. Big, Slade and Poison. You can find yourself rocking to hits like 'Every Rose Has Its Thorn,' 'The Final Countdown,' 'Don't Stop Believin,' 'We Built This City,' and 'Here I Go Again.'
Beyond the song and dance, the story goes deep into characters and sheds light on their motivations and dreams. The musical explores the travails of unexpressed love between Drew and Sherrie, the father-son relationship between the German developers filled with angst, and the desire of Regina and Dennis to save an iconic landmark beyond selfish personal motives. Watch Rock of Ages for an entertaining night full of surprises and great music!
Rock of Ages : Off-Broadway Story
Hollywood attracts young starry-eyed talents like moths to a fire! Rock of Ages is one such saga of dreams and aspirations and what becomes of them. The year is 1987 and the action is taking place in a bar called the ‘Bourbon Room’ on the Los Angeles strip in West Hollywood. The bar owner Dennis Dupree has turned the place into a haven for upcoming talents and stars and has become iconic.
Dennis is assisted in running the bar by Drew who has dreams of becoming a rock star and is just biding his time. Soon, Sherrie Christian enters his life and captures his heart. She is a young starlet who has run away from her home in the heartland and aspires to become an actress and works as a waitress meanwhile. They both have their tryst with fame as Drew auditions for the band Arsenal and gets selected, while Sherrie is lured by Stacee, the lead singer of the band.
Things start going downhill as Stacee abandons Sherrie and Drew isn’t happy with the kind of music they want him to make. They both are unable to express their feelings for each other and get swept away in the turmoil of their lives. The Bourbon Room is also under pressure of redevelopment by a German father-son duo and the City Planner, Regina, is trying to stop them.
Drew becomes a pizza delivery boy, while Sherrie ends up as an exotic dancer, and the Bourbon is on the verge of breakdown. Watch this intriguing story full of unexpected moments set to fantastic music only in Rock of Ages!
