Hit jukebox musical Rock Of Ages is set to take its big wigs and 1980s hits across London’s West End next year when it transfers to the Garrick theatre.
The LA-set rock musical, which opened at the Shaftesbury theatre last year featuring a cast including Shayne Ward, Justin Lee Collins and Oliver Tompsett, will reopen at the Garrick theatre from 18 January following its final performance at its current home on 6 January.
Featuring classic tunes including We Built This City, The Final Countdown, I Wanna Know What Love Is, Here I Go Again and Don’t Stop Believin’, Rock Of Ages is set in 1987 in the Sunset Strip and tells the story of a small town girl who meets a big city rocker in LA’s most famous rock club before falling in love to some of the greatest songs of the decade.
Talking of the show’s transfer, Simon Lipkin, who plays the narrator in the bouffant-tastic production, said: “It’s awesome we’re following Status Quo’s mantra of Rockin’ All Over The World, we’re Rockin’ All Over The West End!”
Currently starring Ross Hunter, Daniel Fletcher and Tim Howar, Rock Of Ages will transfer to the Garrick theatre following Elliot Davis and James Bourne’s new musical Loserville, which plays at the venue until 5 January.
