Tony Award nominee and American Idol finalist Constantine Maroulis will return to Broadway's Rock of Ages at the Helen Hayes Theatre in the role of Drew on August 4. Maroulis will remain in the role for a limited 12-week engagement through October 26.

An original Broadway, off-Broadway, and first national tour Rock of Ages cast member, Maroulis played Drew for three consecutive years and received a Tony nomination for his portrayal. His other Broadway credits include The Wedding Singer and, most recently, the first Broadway revival of Jekyll & Hyde.

Directed by Kristin Hanggi and choreographed by Kelly Devine, the five-time Tony nominated Rock of Ages features a book by Chris D'Arienzo and a score that includes hits by 1980s hair-metal bands like Night Ranger, Twisted Sister, Foreigner, Poison, REO Speedwagon, and Journey. The 2012 film adaptation starred Russell Brand, Tom Cruise, Julianne Hough, and Mary J. Blige.

The show's current Broadway cast includes Carrie St. Louis as Sherrie, Aaron C. Finley as Drew, Joey Calveri as Stacee Jaxx, Genson Blimline as Lonny, Adam Dannheisser as Dennis, Cody Scott Lancaster as Franz, Josephine Rose Roberts as Regina, Paul Schoeffler as Hertz, and Teresa Stanley as Justice.
