History

Rock of Ages is a rock/jukebox musical, with a book by Chris D'Arienzo, built around classic rock hits from the 1980s, especially from the renowned glam metal bands of the decade. The musical includes songs from Styx, Journey, Bon Jovi, Pat Benatar, Twisted Sister, Steve Perry, Poison, and Europe, among other well-known rock bands.

The show is directed by Kristin Hanggi and choreographed by Kelly Devine with music supervision, arrangements, and orchestrations by Ethan Popp. Arrangements for the original Los Angeles production were created by David Gibbs. Rock of Ages stands out for being more lighthearted and comedic than other shows on Broadway. In the middle of performances, the performers frequently break the "fourth wall," directly addressing the audience and seemingly forgetting (or perhaps reminding the audience) that they are actors in a musical.

The musical premiered on July 27, 2005 in Los Angeles at King King, a club on Hollywood Boulevard. It relocated to the Vanguard Hollywood in January 2006 where it played for six weeks. Chris D'Arienzo's book was directed by Kristin Hanggi, with choreography by RJ Durell. Orchestrations and arrangements were by David Gibbs and Kyle Puccia. Gibbs has also played guitar in the onstage band, Arsenal. Laura Bell Bundy portrayed the role of Sherrie in this early production.

After a successful run at the Vanguard, the show then moved to Ren-Mar studios, where it played to sold out crowds. In May 2006, a short run took place at the Flamingo in Las Vegas. The musical opened Off-Broadway at New World Stages on October 16, 2008 and ran through January 4, 2009, featuring Constantine Maroulis, Paul Schoeffler and Will Swenson. Kelly Devine was the new choreographer, and Ethan Popp was recruited to help orchestrate new songs added to the production.

The production transferred to Broadway at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre with previews starting March 20, 2009, and officially opening on April 7, 2009. The Broadway production temporarily closed on January 9, 2011 and moved to the Helen Hayes Theatre on March 24, 2011.

The show's band has a great deal of stage time compared to other musicals' bands and orchestras. The band dresses in typical metalhead costumes, fitting with their role as Stacee's backup band, and they are always present onstage. The drummer performs inside a cage with a sign on it that says "Please don't feed the drummer."
