It helps that the director and choreographer are, now as then, two women: Kristin Hanggi and Kelly Devine. Also returning is the original cast member Mitchell Jarvis, who is back overplaying the narrator, Lonny — a puckish employee of the Bourbon Room, the rock club where most of the action takes place.

The outrageously funny and wildly audacious jukebox musical Rock of Ages is back in New York to celebrate the tenth anniversary of its Broadway debut in , in an open-ended Off-Broadway engagement at New World Stages. Oh, wait. The original Broadway design team of Beowulf Boritt set , Zachary Borovay projections , Jason Lyons lighting , Gregory Gale costumes , Tom Watson hair and wigs , and Angelina Avallone make-up recapture the trashy glitz and decadence of the Sunset Strip and rock genre, from the neon signs and sleazy club rooms to the long hair, black eyeliner and nail polish of the rockers and the scanty thongs, bras, and breakaway attire of the strippers. And they do, in the spirit of a true rock concert. CJ Eldred as Drew and Kirsten Scott as Sherrie bring their strong emotive voices to their impressive solos and harmonious duets, and deliver the innocence, disappointments, and dreams of the young transplants to the Strip, along with their sentimental feelings for each other. Griffith has the looks, sound, and presence of a decadent rocker in his sidesplitting portrayal of Stacee Jaxx, whose overblown ego and illicit liaisons — on stage, in a live-feed video, and staggering through the audience — not only cause trouble for Sherrie and Drew, but also for himself. And the llama. Each one embraces the madcap premise of the show and performs it with full-out gusto. For tickets, call , or purchase them online.

He falls instantly for a girl, Sherrie Christian, who just arrived from Paola, Kansas , hoping to make it big in acting " Sister Christian ". Drew convinces Dennis to hire Sherrie as a waitress. A pair of German developers, Hertz Klinemann and his son Franz, persuade the city's mayor to abandon the "sex, drugs and rock-n-roll" lifestyle of the Sunset Strip and introduce "clean living" into the area, much to the anger of the City Planner, Regina " We Built This City ". When Dennis learns that part of the plan involves demolishing The Bourbon Room, he believes the club can generate more money by having rock star Stacee Jaxx and his band Arsenal, who recently announced their break-up, perform their last show at the Bourbon " Too Much Time on My Hands ".
