I'll be an onstage ensemble swing and understudy for Franz and Hertz in the upcoming international tour of Rock of Ages. Hopefully coming to a city near you!
The 1980s jukebox musical Rock of Ages will head out on the road this fall in an all-new touring production commemorating its 10th anniversary.
A scrappy blend of 1980s nostalgia and legit rock musicianship, Rock of Ages opened Off-Broadway at New World Stages in the fall of 2008 before transferring to Broadway the following spring, picking up five 2009 Tony Award nominations including Best Musical.
The upcoming non-equity tour of Rock of Ages will be directed by Martha Banta and choreographed by Janet Rothermel. Arrangements and orchestrations are by Ethan Popp. Casting and a touring schedule will be announced at a later date. The 10th anniversary tour is produced by Fifth Estate Entertainment.
The production incorporates a parade of ’80s hits, including “Every Rose Has Its Thorn,” “I Wanna Know What Love Is,” “Here I Go Again,” and “Don’t Stop Believin’.” The show’s book is by Chris D’Arienzo.
Rock of Ages ran for 2,328 performances on Broadway before closing in January 2015. A screen adaptation was released in 2012.
