About the show

The original Broadway hit production is back to celebrate its 10th anniversary. This five-time Tony Award-nominated musical features an electric score full of classic ‘80s rock anthems. More…

"Rock of Ages" tells the story of a small-town girl, a city boy, and a rock ‘n’ roll romance on the Sunset Strip. But when the bar where rock reigns supreme is set to be demolished, it’s up to these wannabe rockers and their band of friends to save the day – and the music. "Rock of Ages" features such hits as "Every Rose Has Its Thorn," "I Wanna Know What Love Is," "Here I Go Again," "Don't Stop Believin’," and many more.
