Rock of Ages
It’s 1987 on the Sunset Strip, at the immaculately feathered apex of hair metal. Small-town girl Sherrie “Sister” Christian has just moved to Hollywood chasing silver-screen dreams, but finds herself detoured by love and fate when she crosses paths with South Detroiter Drew Boley, a free-spirited rocker who busses tables at the Bourbon Room. When a couple of painfully square real-estate developers threatens to transform the head-banging dive into something more family-friendly, Drew and Sherrie set in motion a plan to raise the necessary funds with the help of bleach-banged rock icon Stacee Jaxx and his band, Arsenal. Jaxx agrees to the plan, but the pampered star soon shows Sherrie that not all rockers are as gentlemanly as Drew. As the action ramps up, the actors' lungs inflate for more than 25 '80s hits such as “We’re Not Gonna Take It,” “Any Way You Want It,” “We Built This City,” and “Hit Me With Your Best Shot.”
Rock of Ages was nominated for five Tony Awards in 2009 in categories including Best Musical, Best Costume Design, and Best Sound Design, and recently became the 50th longest-running Broadway show. Lauded by the New York Times as “a seriously silly, absurdly enjoyable arena-rock” ride, the amplified romp also boasts a Guinness World Record for the Largest Air Guitar Ensemble after a performance in which 810 members of the cast and audience shredded on invisible axes.
