Broadway’s Biggest Party returns to Manila! ROCK OF AGES, the sold out smash hit musical is back one last time for a very limited run from Oct 31 – Nov 9, 2014 at the Meralco Theatre.
Featuring classic rock songs from the 80s like We Built This City, Every Rose Has Its Thorn, I Wanna Rock, Hit Me With Your Best Shot, and Don’t Stop Believin’, ROCK OF AGES tells the story of Drew and Sherrie, two young dreamers who meet on the Sunset Strip and find that sometimes, when your dreams get dashed, you end up with a gift far more precious than that which you set out to find. All that in a face-melting, laugh-a-minute, rocking show! It continues to run on Broadway to sold out crowds.
MiG Ayesa who took Manila by storm two years ago returns to the stage as Stacee Jaxx, the rockstar, nay rock god, whose performance may or may not save a small club on the Sunset Strip that is being threatened with closure. Stacee ends up crashing on budding lovers and Sunset Strip dreamers — Drew and Sherrie.
MiG Ayesa has performed in West End musicals such as BUDDY, RENT and WE WILL ROCK YOU. On Broadway he has performed inROCK OF AGES and BURN THE FLOOR. He was a top 3 finalist on Rockstar:INXS.
“Even from my first rehearsal with the cast two years ago, I knew that we had something special. It’s a great gift to be able to do the show again in Manila for the third time!” says MiG.
Nyoy Volante, who earned rave reviews for his performance as Donkey in the hit run of SHREK, returns to the role of Drew.
Rounding off this powerhouse cast are Jett Pangan as Lonny, Jamie Wilson as Dennis, Calvin Millado as Hertz, Bibo Reyes as Franz and Jinky Llamanzares as Justice Charlier.

Kayla, who has made her mark as a high wattage musical theatre actress in shows such as IN THE HEIGHTS, ALADDIN and THE ADDAMS FAMILY says of joining the ROCK OF AGES cast, “I am so excited to be taking on the role of Sherrie, unleashing the more spunky and sexy side of me. To be working alongside MiG Ayesa and this amazing cast is such an honor. MiG lights up the room with his very warm personality and rockstar presence!”
