Rock of Ages, the hit musical that has been entertaining London theatre audiences since 2011 now takes up residence at the Garrick Theatre in the West End, where it will undoubtedly continue to attract widespread attention. The US hit show Rock of Ages joined a host of other Broadway musicals to make the transition across the Atlantic to appear on a West End stage in 2011. It was a time in which the Shaftesbury Theatre joined many other locations in welcoming another jukebox musical that takes some of the most beloved glam rock classics of the 1980s and brings them back into the spotlight under the accompaniment of a compelling and heartfelt story. So for London theatre audiences, it is clear that Rock of Ages has been an absolute must-see ever since it arrived in tow.
Audiences get the opportunity to step back in time to the 1980s in Rock of Ages as the story, which features a book by Chris D’Arienzo, unfolds onstage. It had already been highly regarded in the States and during its time there it racked up an impressive number of Tony Award-nominations, so audiences know that they are in for something truly special. It first appeared at the Vanguard in Hollywood before it embarked on a US tour, with appearances in Toronto and Melbourne as well. So it is definitely the turn of West End audiences to get in on the action as it welcomes a cast of talented individuals to Theatreland.
The plot centres on small town girl Sherrie and LA busboy Drew. The former hails from Kansas and when she lands on the sunset strip she is unaware of the glam rock adventure on which she is about to embark. She soon meets Drew and whilst he currently works as a busboy he is in fact a wannabe big city rocker and together they bond over their love of 80s glam rock. Along the way audiences get to experience the classic numbers of artists such as Poison, Journey and the ever-popular Bon Jovi in an awe-inspiring spectacle.
Those wishing to pick up theatre tickets and witness Rock of Ages are in for a treat as the show continues to earn great praise. So when the curtains roll back and the performers hit the stage you know you are in for a great ride!
And with that in mind there is going to be a lot of demand for Rock Of Ages when it begins performances at its new home of the Garrick Theatre on Friday 18th January 2013.
