Twisted Sister front man Dee Snider will return to Broadway April 9-15 when he joins the cast of Rocktopia as a special guest artist.

Snider made his Broadway debut in 2010 in Rock of Ages. His run in Rocktopia comes following the April 8 departure of Train's Pat Monahan and prior to the April 23 arrival of Cheap Trick's Robin Zander.

Developed over eight years, Rocktopia is "inspired by the idea that if Beethoven or Mozart were alive today, they would be modern-day rock stars." Created by recording artist Rob Evan (Jekyll & Hyde) and Maestro Randall Craig Fleischer, the show features works by Mozart, Queen, Beethoven, Journey, Handel, U2, Tchaikovsky, Pink Floyd, Heart, Rachmaninoff, Foreigner, Copland, the Who, and more.

Featured vocalists include Rob Evan, Chloe Lowery, Tony Vincent, Kimberly Nichole, and Alyson Cambridge, as well as Celtic violinist Máiréad Nesbitt, guitarist Tony Bruno, a five-piece rock band, a 20-piece orchestra, and a 40-member choir.
