Rock of Ages Story
Rock of Ages offers the most hair-raising fun on Broadway…literally! Take a nostalgic trip back to the hard-rocking 1980s when life was crazier, love was wilder, and hair was bigger. This long-running musical tells the story of small town girl Sherrie and city boy Drew, who meet on the Sunset Strip while pursuing their Hollywood dreams. The classic rock love story of the decade erupts into Broadway’s best party, all to the sounds of such feel-good, sing-out-loud songs as “Don’t Stop Believin’,” “Every Rose Has Its Thorn,” “I Wanna Know What Love Is,” “Here I Go Again” and more.Copyright © 2009 - 2012 Broadway's Best Shows; all rights reserved.
