ROCK OF AGES is a hilarious, feel-good love story told through the hit songs such as: ‘I Want to Know What Love Is’, ‘Don’t Stop Believin”, ‘The Final Countdown’, ‘We Built This City’ and ‘More Than Words’ by iconic rockers such as Foreigner, Journey, Styx, REO Speedwagon, Poison, Starship, Pat Benatar, Whitesnake, and many more.
The Australian production of this critically acclaimed Broadway musical at the Comedy Theatre, Melbourne from April 2011.
Set in 1987 on the Sunset Strip, a small-town girl meets a big-city dreamer and in L.A.’s most legendary rock club, they fall in love to the greatest songs of the ‘80s. It’s an awesomely good time where big hair meets big dreams in a Rock ‘n’ Roll comedy romance.
Following an extremely successful Off Broadway run in October 2008 and a bidding war over the film rights in which New Line Cinema won, and Adam Shankman (HAIRSPRAY) is directing, ROCK OF AGES transferred to Broadway’s Brooks Atkinson Theatre in April 2009 to critical acclaim and continued audience adoration.
ROCK OF AGES was nominated for five 2009 Tony Awards®, including Best Musical, Best Actor in a Musical, Best Direction of a Musical, Best Costume Design of a Musical, and Best Sound Design for a Musical.
