'Rock of Ages' will close on Broadway in January

The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) It's the final countdown for Broadway's only hair metal musical.

Producers of "Rock of Ages" said Tuesday that the show now the 27th longest running show in Broadway history will close Jan. 18 after more than 2,300 performances.

"Rock of Ages" tells the story of a small town girl and an aspiring rocker whose glittery romance is set to a rock 'n' roll soundtrack that includes "Every Rose Has Its Thorn," ''Here I Go Again" and "Don't Stop Believin.'"

The show started in a nightclub in Los Angeles and moved off-Broadway in 2008. It opened at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre on Broadway in 2009 and switched to the Helen Hayes Theatre in 2011. It recouped its capitalization of $7.25 million.

It currently stars Constantine Maroulis.
