Rock of Ages has confirmed it is transferring to the Garrick Theatre from 18 January 2013 after finishing its current run at the Shaftesbury Theatre on 6 January.
According to press material, "Taking such a huge cast and crew on a journey to a new venue is quite a challenge but the Garrick Theatre is ready to rock and welcome fans young and old."
The Garrick is currently home to new musical Loserville, which closes on 5 January.
The Broadway import, which opened at the Shaftesbury on 28 September 2011 (previews from 31 August), features a compendium of rock songs including "Don’t Stop Believin’", "We Built This City", "The Final Countdown", "Here I Go Again" and "Can’t Fight This Feeling".
Set in 1987 on the Sunset Strip and billed as an "arena-rock love story", Rock of Ages centres on Drew, a busboy and aspiring rocker who chases his dreams to Los Angeles’ most famous rock club, where he meets a small-town girl newly arrived from Kansas, named Sherrie.
The musical, which has a book by Chris D'Arienzo, premiered in LA in 2006. It opened Off-Broadway in October 2008, before transferring to Broadway’s Brooks Atkinston Theater in April 2009 and, subsequently, the Helen Hayes Theater.
It was recently made into a film, starring Tom Cruise, Russell Brand, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Alec Baldwin.
