PHOTO EXCLUSIVE: "Welcome to the Bourbon Room!" Backstage Portraits at Broadway's Rock of Ages
12 Mar 2013
The Tony Award nominated musical Rock of Ages has been melting faces Sunset Strip-style for nearly four years on Broadway. Playbill.com photographer Monica Simoes recently gained unprecedented backstage access and shot a series of portraits featuring the world famous Bourbon Room and rockin' cast.
Drawing on the style of 80's rock photography, Simoes captured the scene at the Helen Hayes Theatre pre-show, cast members prepping for the performance, onstage shots from the wings and the final curtain call.
The musical comedy Rock of Ages borrows rock hits of the 1980s to tell the story of showbiz lovers in L.A. The score includes "Every Rose Has Its Thorn," "I Wanna Know What Love Is," "Here I Go Again," "Don't Stop Believin'" and more.
Rock of Ages is produced on Broadway and worldwide by Matthew Weaver, Michael Cohl and Jonathan Linden/S2BN Entertainment, in addition to Carl Levin, Jeff Davis, Barry Habib, Scott Prisand, Reagan Silber, Relativity Media, Janet Billig Rich and Hillary Weaver.
