National Football League (NFL) players Randall Cobb, Joique Bell and Ahman Green make their Broadway debuts in the Tony Award-nominated musical Rock of Ages during the week leading up to Super Bowl XLVIII. The "#BroadwayBlitz" kicks off Jan. 28 at 7 PM at The Helen Hayes Theater with Green Bay Packers wide receiver Cobb.
Cobb's performance will be followed by Detroit Lions running back Joique Bell at the 8 PM show Jan. 29 and four-time Pro-Bowl running back Green at the Feb. 1 matinee performance at 2 PM.
Each player will make four cameo appearances — with special lines and choreography — throughout the show.
As previously announced, the cast will perform on the Roman Numerals Stage of "Super Bowl Boulevard - Engineered by GMC" at 41st Street & Broadway Jan. 30 and — during the final hours before kickoff — at the official NFL Tailgate Party at the Grandstand at Meadowlands Racetrack and Game Day Fan Plaza outside of MetLife Stadium on Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 2.
Featuring the Broadway classics “To Life (L’Chaim!),” “If I Were A Rich Man,” “Sunrise Sunset,” “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” and “Tradition,” Fiddler on the Roof will introduce a new generation to this uplifting celebration that raises its cup to joy! To love! To life!
