November 11, 2010
The Herald-Star

PITTSBURGH - Five-time Tony Award-nominated musical "Rock of Ages" comes to Pittsburgh's Benedum Center Nov. 23-28.

In 1987 on the Sunset Strip, a small-town girl met a big-city dreamer - and in L.A.'s most legendary rock club, they fell in love to the greatest songs of the '80s. It's "Rock of Ages," a love story where big hair meets big dreams, told through the hit songs of rockers Journey, Styx, REO Speedwagon, Foreigner, Pat Benatar and Whitesnake.

The Broadway production was nominated for five 2009 Tony Awards, including best musical, and New Line Records released the original Broadway cast recording in July 2009, featuring 28 songs from the show.
