Rock of Ages set for Chicago

Rock Of AGesIndividual tickets to the Broadway production of Rock Of Ages will go on sale on Friday, July 16, 2010 at 10:00 a.m. The five time Tony Award nominated smash-hit musical Rock Of Ageswill play the Bank of America Theatre for a limited two week engagement September 21 - October 3, 2010. Tony Award Nominee and "American Idol" finalist, Constantine Maroulis, will reprise his acclaimed performance as Drew in the First National Tour that launches in Chicago.

In 1987 on the Sunset Strip, a small-town girl met a big-city dreamer - and in L.A.'s most legendary rock club, they fell in love to the greatest songs of the '80's. It's Rock Of Ages, a hilarious, feel-good love story told through the hit songs of iconic rockers Journey, Styx, REO Speedwagon, Foreigner, Pat Benatar, Whitesnake, and many more. Don't miss this awesomely good time where big hair meets big dreams and the result totally wails.

Rock Of Ages opened on April 7, 2009 at Broadway's Brooks Atkinson Theatre to critical acclaim, following an off Broadway engagement in the fall of 2008. The Broadway production was nominated for Five 2009 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, and New Line Records released the Original Broadway Cast Recording in July 2009, featuring 28 songs from the show. A New Line Cinema/Warner Bros. film of the musical, directed by Adam Shankman (Hairspray), is scheduled to be released in 2011.

As on Broadway, the touring production will be directed by Tony Award Nominee Kristin Hanggi (Bare, Pussycat Dolls on the Sunset Strip) and choreographed by Kelly Devine (Jersey Boys - Associate Choreographer). The book is by Chris D’Arienzo (writer and director of the film Barry Munday), the original arrangements are by David Gibbs(Counting Crows, Film: That Thing You Do) and the Music Supervision, Arrangements & Orchestrations are by Ethan Popp (Tarzan; Europe: We Will Rock You, Mamma Mia).

Individual tickets to Rock Of Ages are $18 - $85 and will go on sale on Friday, July 16 at 10:00 a.m. Tickets are available at ticketmaster.com.
