The face and sound of Broadway is changing as the music of the rock generation becomes more available.
Tonight, Rock of Ages, the show which features music of the big hair bands of the 80's will add a bonus for those attending the 8:00 show. Kevin Cronin, the frontman for REO Speedwagon, will perform "I Can't Fight This Feeling" backed by the Rock of Ages house band, Arsenal. The song, which is used in the show, was one of the band's biggest hits. Following the performance, the other members of REO Speedwagon will join Kevin for an audience Q & A. Information and tickets are available at the Rock of Ages website.
Starting Tuesday, Sept. 28 through Sunday, Oct. 3 only, Billie Joe Armstrong of the band Green Day will join the current Broadway cast of American Idiot. Armstrong is scheduled to play the role of St. Jimmy, one of the show's lead characters. American Idiot examines the post 9/11 world and uses the driving songs of Green Day to create a musical trek through the story it tells. Tickets are available through the American Idiot on Broadway website.
