Let’s go back. Way back. Back to a time when the Sunset Strip was the place to see and be seen in Hollywood. The skirts were short, the hair was big, and the party never ended! This is the backdrop for the five-time Tony Award nominated, and later film adapted, musical “Rock Of Ages.”
On January 15th Rock of Ages Hollywood will be returning to Hollywood Boulevard for its 20th production in a custom built performance theater. With 6 years on Broadway and over 2,350 performances, 5 Tony nominations, 20 productions worldwide and 30 hit songs from the 80s, Rock of Ages is the best-reviewed, most-nominated, hair band musical of all time.
The newly transformed “Bourbon Room” on Hollywood Boulevard is the new home for a theatrical performance like no other. This dinner theater style production gives guests an up close and personal view from a stellar class of talent. They are bringing it back to the concept of performing inside a Hollywood club since it first premiered in a Hollywood club back in 2005 before catapulting to success. The audience is encouraged to sing along to power ballads from some of the biggest rock legends of that era.
The cast includes Tony Award Nominee Nick Cordero as “Dennis,” Rock of Ages Broadway alum Frankie Grande as “Franz Klineman,” Regina LeVertas “Justice Charlier,” Sean Lessard as “Stacee Jaxx,” Tiffany Mallari, Chuck Saculla, Marisa Matthews, Callandra Olivia as “Sherrie,” Stefan Raulston, Justin Ray as “Joey Primo,” Pat Towne as “Hertz Klineman,” Zoe Unkovich, Stephanie Renee Wall as “Regina,” Ian Ward as “Drew,” Matt Wolpe as “Lonny,” and Neka Zang as “Constance.”
Live theater isn’t just for your trips to the Great White Way. Los Angeles has the Pantages and other wonderful theaters, while the newly minted Bourbon Room will definitely set itself from the pack.
You can purchase a full dinner and cocktails while enjoying a toe-tapping, smile inducing night out with friends. You will want to see this new group of explosive performers and just support an art form that truly stands the test of time.
