Ticket alert: 'Rock of Ages' Broadway musical coming to Kravis Center

It’s a roll down rock memory lane with the road tour of “Rock of Ages,” a jukebox musical that puts the spotlight on Reagan-era hits. Tickets go on sale 10 a.m. Friday, Sept. 7, for the Nov. 6-11 run of the show.

This is the 10th anniversary tour of “Rock of Ages,” which tells the classic story of a small-town girl meeting and falling in love with a big-city rocker at a Sunset Strip bar while both wrestle with the lure of fame in the personage of a sleazy frontman for a hot hair band.

Tickets start at $28. To order, call 561-832-7469 or go to Kravis.org. You can also visit the Kravis Center box office at 701 Okeechobee Blvd., in West Palm Beach.

The musical comedy strings together hits by heavy-metal, glam-metal and pop-metal chart toppers such as Quiet Riot, Twisted Sister, Steve Perry, Night Ranger, REO Speedwagon, Styx, Journey, Bon Jovi, Pat Benatar and Whitesnake.

In 2011, Fort Lauderdale was the backdrop for the filming of a movie version starring Tom Cruise, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Alec Baldwin. Part of the big-screen adaptation of “Rock of Ages,” which opened in theaters the following year, was shot at Revolution Live nightclub in downtown Fort Lauderdale and on the surrounding streets in Himmarshee village.
