Rock of Ages - a background to the musical
Chris D'Arienzo wrote the stage book of Rock of Ages around the rock hits of the 1980s. Original Broadway direction was by Kristin Hanggi with orchestration by Ethan Pope and choreography by Kelly Devine. The musical opened at the Brooke Atkinson Theatre in April 2009 before transferring to the Helen Hayes Theatre in early 2011. It played on Broadway for 4 years and over 2,300 performances while having a simultaneous run in the West End's Shaftesbury Theatre from 2011 to 2013.
The plot of Rock of Ages takes us back to 1987 and the vibrant heart of Sunset Strip. Here, Dennis Dupree is the seedy owner of a rock and roll club where innocent new arrival Sherrie Christian encouraged by her boyfriend Drew wants to become a star. But, as romance and stardom flourish scheming developers have their eye on Sunset Strip and want to close the club. Stacee Jaxx, lead singer of the glam-band Arsenal is persuaded to play at the club in the hope that the money raised will save it. Jaxx, however, leaves a trail of destruction and broken hearts, including Sherrie's in his wake. Will love triumph and the club be saved?
Rock of Ages - rocking its way to fame
London West End audiences in the August of 2012 got more than they expected when the flamboyant Alice Cooper made a surprise appearance and joined the cast of Rock of Ages to perform his 1972 classic, "School's Out". Over the years Rock of Ages has received several Tony and Drama League nominations including Best Musical, Best Direction and Best Costume Design but maybe its biggest accolade is the Guinness World Record set at a Broadway matinee performance in 2009. The cast and audience achieved the record for the Largest Air Guitar Ensemble when 810 participants shattered the previous record of 440!
