Rock Of AgesA girl meets a city rocker in a famous Los Angeles rock club, and they fall in love to classic '80s rock songs. A worldwide smash hit, Rock Of Ages features a raucous mix of 28 classic rock hits including 'Don't Stop Believin', 'We Built This City', 'The Final Countdown', 'Wanted Dead or Alive' and 'Here I Go Again'. Described by the New York Times as an 'absurdly enjoyable rock musical', this celebration of '80s rock culture is set to take the Shaftesbury Theatre by storm before transferring to the Garrick Theatre on January 18.

 

About Shaftesbury Theatre

A large and appealingly shabby Edwardian theatre which has produced almost a century of successful popular drama and musicals. The most notorious of these was Hair, infamous both for onstage nudity and an unfortunate ceiling collapse that terminated its near 2000 performance run. More about Shaftesbury Theatre
