Nebraska’s Home for the Arts, the Lied Center for Performing Arts prepares for the mind blowing, face-melting, five-time Tony-nominated Broadway musical, Rock of Ages. Two performances are scheduled on Feb. 15 at 3:00 and 8:00 PM featuring a mix of 28 incredible 80s tunes including “Don’t Stop Believin’”, “We Built This City”, “The Final Countdown”, “Wanted Dead or Alive”, “Here I Go Again”, “Can’t Fight This Feeling”, and “I Want to Know What Love Is”.

“Rock of Ages is the biggest party on Broadway,” said Bill Stephan, Executive Director of the Lied Center. “It’s everything you love about the movie but bigger, louder, and packed with Broadway theatrics.”

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 1980s. It’s Rock of Ages, a hilarious, feel-good love story told through the hit songs of iconic rockers Journey, Styx, REO Speedwagon, Foreigner, Pat Benatar, Whitesnake, and many more. A five-time Tony nominee, Rock of Ages is a worldwide phenomenon with a smash hit production in London, and still rockin' on Broadway. Don't miss this awesomely good time about dreaming big, playing loud and partying on!

Rock of Ages is directed by Tony award nominee Kristin Hanggi (Bare, Pussycat Dolls on the Sunset Strip) and choreographed by Kelly Devine (Jersey Boys – Associate Choreographer). With a book by Chris D'Arienzo (writer and director of the film Barry Munday), original arrangements by David Gibbs (Counting Crows, Film: That Thing You Do) and the music supervision, arrangements and orchestrations by Ethan Popp (Tarzan; Europe: We Will Rock You, Mamma Mia).

Rock of Ages features set design by Beowulf Boritt (Spelling Bee, LoveMusik), costume design by Tony nominee Gregory Gale (Cyrano, The Wedding Singer), lighting design by Jason Lyons (The Threepenny Opera), sound design by Craig Cassidy (Phantom, Mamma Mia), and projection design is by Zachary Borovay (A Catered Affair).
