Rock of Ages the jukebox musical, will wallop Montreal's winter blahs with its eight-show run at Théâtre St-Denis next week. Produced by Evenko and Broadway Across Canada, the play premieres on Tuesday, February 26, and features weekend matinee performances on March 2nd and 3rd.
This ode to 80s classic rock cum heavy metal glam promises to thrill theatregoers nostalgic for bad boy bands from days gone by. Rock hits by Styx, Journey, Bon Jovi, Twisted Sister, Guns N' Roses, Def Leppard, Poison and Europe, among others are featured.
Audience participation is de rigueur, and all attendees are urged to bring their air guitars. After all, the show set a Guinness world record for 'Largest Air Guitar Ensemble' which comprised 810 people (including audience/fans and cast).
