The jukebox musical Rock of Ages impresses with rock-studded numbers
Some musicians and bands make music that is far too great to not incorporate in a story and play on stage. This must have been what producer Chris D’Arienzo thought when he breathed life into this jukebox musical. Tickets for Rock of Ages are on sale on StubHub, and with them, you can see the best of rock music intertwined with a cool plot.
Be whisked into the world of this rock musical
Ever since this rock-induced musical premiered in Los Angeles in 2005, it has engulfed the hearts of rock fans all over the world. In 2009, it made its way to Broadway, where it enjoyed a running time of over 2,300 performances and made it to the top thirty of Broadway’s longest-running musicals, tying on spot 29 with Man of La Mancha. The American Broadway production spawned various international productions, making its way to the West End in London, Melbourne and Manila. The musical’s plot is about Drew Boley, a busboy who is in love with Sherrie, the new waitress. But the gastronomy theme only extends so far into this musical, music is really what it is all about—and the fight of the small man. Developers want to "clean up" the city and cleanse it from rock‘n’roll. To let one of the city’s coolest clubs go out with a bang, a rock band is hired to play one last time, bringing chaos and great music to the Hollywood area. This tale of Hollywood dreamers who fight for their art is carried by some of the greatest music numbers, like "The Final Countdown", "I Wanna Rock" and "Can’t Fight This Feeling". What’s also different from this musical is its general musical approach. Instead of being neatly tucked away in a corner, the band usually plays on stage with the cast to bring the music closer to the audience. If you now think this is exactly the kind of entertainment you’ve been looking for, you can quickly secure your tickets for Rock of Ages on StubHub now and rock off for a night.
