10th Anniversary production of Rock of Ages to play New World Stages
Rock of Ages will play a limited summer engagement at New World Stages from June 19 to September 29, 2019.
Did you ever stop believin'?! The five-time Tony Award-nominated musical Rock of Ages will officially return to the New York stage this summer for a special 10th Anniversary production at New World Stages. The limited engagement is scheduled to run from June 19 through to September 29, 2019.
The production re-unites the original Broadway creative team, including Tony-nominated director Kristin Hanggi and recent Olivier Award-winning choreographer Kelly Devine. Casting will be announced at a later date.
Synopsis: "Rock of Ages is set to the greatest rock anthems and power ballads of the 80s, like you’ve never heard them before. Featuring such hits as “Wanted Dead or Alive,” “I Wanna Know What Love Is,” “Every Rose Has Its Thorn,” “Here I Go Again,” “Don’t Stop Believin'” and many more."
Rock of Ages, which features a book by Chris D’Arienzo, opened on Broadway on April 7, 2009, and enjoyed an impressive six-year run of 2,350 performances. It originally premiered in January 2006 at The Vanguard Hollywood nightclub in Los Angeles, later moving to The Flamingo in Las Vegas in May 2006. Rather fittingly, the musical was first staged in New York (ahead of its Broadway transfer) in October 2008 at New World Stages, the home of this 10th Anniversary production.
The 10th Anniversary Production is produced by Michael Cohl/S2BN Entertainment in association with Barry Habib, Scott Prisand/Seth Fass, Tony Smith, and Randi Zuckerberg/ Mara Burros-Sandler.
Rock of Ages Tickets are on sale now for performances from June 19 through to September 29, 2019.
