The ’80s are back at Limelight Theatre in the smash hit Broadway musical Rock of Ages.Written by Chris D’Arienzo and directed by Ashlee Torrens and Kathleen Del Casale, it’s an LA love story where big hair meets big dreams in a rock’n’roll comedy romance. A small-town girl, fresh off the bus and hoping to become a Hollywood star, meets a big-city dreamer who, while currently a busboy, is an aspiring rocker. Set in 1987 in LA’s most legendary rock club, they fall in love to the greatest songs of the ’80s.

Rock of Ages is a jukebox musical using classic songs from the era by iconic rockers such as Foreigner, Journey, Bon Jovi, REO Speedwagon, Poison, Starship, Pat Benatar, Whitesnake, Europe and Twisted Sister.

Nominated for five Tony Awards, including best musical, in 2009, the original Broadway production ran for 2,328 performances over six years.
