A rock musical with the greatest hits of the '80s.
Billy Joel gets in a "New York State of Mind" with studded, sparkling Rock of Ages stars James Carpinello, Kerry Butler and Constantine Maroulis. Unfortunately, Joel left his own bedazzled outerwear at home.
He's seen the lights go out on Broadway--and now he's seen them come back on and reflect off a thousand flecks of body glitter. Billy Joel, song-spinner extraordinaire and the Tony Award winning musical mind behind Movin' Out, rocked out to some familiar tunes on Broadway October 17 at Rock of Ages. The mix-tape musical doesn't include any of Grammy Award winner Joel's works, but that doesn't mean the composer was any less amped to meet the production's rockers face to face following a their signature face-melting performance. Stars Constantine Maroulis, Kerry Bulter and James Carpinello were equally pumped to meet their guest, wasting no time in welcoming him backstage at the Brooks Atkinson Theater.
