"Rock of Ages," the touring musical celebrating the rockers and headbangers of the 1980s, will sit down at the Broadway Playhouse at Water Tower Place for most of the summer, Broadway in Chicago said Tuesday. The dates for the nine-week engagement at 175 E. Chestnut St. are June 5 to Aug. 5.
Tickets ($70-$80) go on sale March 14 for an engagement likely to do well with summer visitors to the city. The movie based on the show, starring Tom Cruise and Catherine Zeta-Jones, is slated to open on June 15.
This is the non-Equity tour previously seen in Chicago, albeit now presented in a more intimate setting. "Rock of Ages," with an Equity cast, continues to play on Broadway.
