The international hit Rock of Ages will return to the stage later this year as an immersive production in Los Angeles.

Original producer Matthew Weaver of Media Weaver Entertainment will present Chris D'Arienzo's musical in a bar-like setting where audience members can eat and drink before, during, and after the show. Media Weaver Entertainment is currently accepting commercial real estate proposals in Downtown Los Angeles, Hollywood, or Koreatown that can accommodate up to 500 audience members.

Nominated for five Tony Awards including Best Musical, Rock of Ages features the hits of bands including Journey, Bon Jovi, Night Ranger, REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar, and Twisted Sister, among others. It premiered in January 2006 at the Vanguard Hollywood, opened off-Broadway at New World Stages in 2008, and ran on Broadway for 2,328 performances from 2009-15. It has since been seen in London, Mexico City, Seoul, among other cities across the world.

The cast and creative team will be announced in the coming months. Weaver is in discussions about the Los Angeles production with original director Kristin Hanggi and choreographer Kelly Devine.
