In 1987 on the Sunset Strip, a small-town girl meets a big-city dreamer in L.A.’s most legendary rock club, and they falls in love to the greatest songs of the ‘80s. Rock of Ages is a hilarious, feel-good love story told through the hit songs of iconic rockers Journey, Styx, REO Speedwagon, Foreigner, Pat Benatar, Whitesnake, and many more. The Tony Award-nominated show was written by Chris D’Arienzo, directed by Kristin Hanggi and choreographed by Kelly Devine.
