  • 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 famous glam metal bands of the decade. The musical features songs from Styx, Journey, Bon Jovi, Pat Benatar, Twisted Sister, Steve Perry, Poison and Europe among other well-known rock bands. It is directed by Kristin Hanggi and choreographed by Kelly Devine with music supervision, arrangements and orchestrations by Ethan Popp and David Gibbs. During the performance, the performers frequently break the "fourth wall", directly addressing the audience and seemingly forgetting that they are actors in a musical. Despite the musical's title, the Def Leppard song of the same name is not included in the musical. As of May 2014, it is the 30th longest-running show on Broadway. Since making its Broadway debut in 2009 it has spawned replica productions worldwide in Japan, Australia and the United Kingdom among others, as well as several touring productions.
