Broadway’s Rock of Ages is preparing for its final bow after taking names and melting faces for six glorious years at the Helen Hayes Theatre. Staking claim as the 27th longest-running show in Broadway history, who would have thought Phantom would ever come in such close proximity to dive bars, leather mini skirts and a mullet?
Filled with big hair and even bigger dreams, the production has delivered irreplaceable style a la Sunset Strip nightly to audiences in The Big Apple.
Reflecting straight from the show’s legendary Los Angeles turf, it’s additionally perfect to honor what’s been such a major source of inspiration for years while I'm residing "on location."
Throughout its New York and Vegas stints, ROA’s take-away messages never failed to hit harder and harder with each passing view.
Finding love in place of fame (spoiler alert), Drew and Sherrie remain a lasting reminder that sometimes the dreams you come with aren’t always the dreams you leave with. Though lonely at times, staying true to the road you feel is right will ultimately lead you to whatever and whoever is meant to be.
As cosmic confirmation strikes again, traveling down the only road ever known resumes.
Things resonate for a reason, so don’t stop…and may the spirit of Drew, Sherrie and the gang forever see us all through!
