The Tony Award-nominated hit Rock of Ages receives its Asian premiere with a summer Manila staging featuring U.S. tour and Broadway star MiG Ayesa as Stacee Jaxx.
"Almost exactly a year ago," says cast member Jamie Wilson, "I had the good fortune to watch Mig Ayesa in the Broadway production of Rock of Ages. As I was having a blast in the audience, I couldn't help but think how much I would love to play Dennis Dupree. And now here I am, with Mig Ayesa and a brilliant bunch of actors, in the Manila production. Hard work and perseverance, and a fair amount of luck just goes to prove that if you want it bad enough, your dreams DO come true!"
