“Rocktopia” Begins @ The Broadway Theatre

A couple of months ago, I had the privilege to attend the Press Preview for an upcoming Broadway Rock Meets Classical performance called “ROCKTOPIA”. The experience was documented right here on PiercingMetal in an article that you can read by clicking on THIS LINK. I’m here now to announce to you all that the show is opening up in the next couple of days at The Broadway Theatre and you are not going to want to miss this one.

At the time of this writing I am NOT yet going to any of the performances myself but I am definitely interested in catching it at least once. I’d be curious to see how Pat Monahan of Train does with this presentation. Truth be told I’ve never really followed that particular band but I do love his voice overall so think the audience might be in for something wonderful. Considering its only a six week run, I will be listing a number of the performances on our Events Calendar so just click that text to launch it and peruse the show or shows that you want to attend. It’s a lot of entries to do but if I can list a whole gamut of “Springsteen On Broadway” dates, I can do no less for the folks in “Rocktopia”.

The Performers: Alex Alexander, Alyson Cambridge, Chloe Lowery, Henry Aronsen, Kimberly Nichole, Máiréad Nesbitt, Randall Craig Fleischer, Rob Evan, Tony Bruno and Tony Vincent.

“Rocktopia” Press Preview @ SIR Studios (1/16/2018)

It was only a few days ago that I had gotten my hands on the Official Press Release about the upcoming Broadway musical experience known as “Rocktopia” and since the worlds attention span is so fleeting nowadays HERE is that notice in case you missed it for some reason. This past Tuesday I had the honor and pleasure of watching a few numbers from the upcoming show at the legendary SIR Studios. Check out my brief about the experience and get excited for “Rocktopia”.

For me, a Broadway show is one of those experiences that cannot easily be explained. I think that they are wonderous and while I don’t get to as many as I would like to based on the occasional difficult ticket or the price tag on a good seat, when I do go it’s something that I find myself talking about for weeks on end. I’ve leaned on the musical more than anything dramatic and have added “Grease” (during its original run and redo), “Miss Saigon”, “Pirates Of Penzance”, “Sweeney Todd”, “Little Shop Of Horrors”, “Wicked” and “Rent”. Hmm, maybe I should start doing reviews of this stuff on PiercingKen.com but I digress. My appreciation for the theatre and all of the talented people that make things happen made the invite to the press preview for “Rocktopia” at SIR Studios a very awesome thing. Here’s my thoughts on the proceedings.

Broadway Gets Ready For “ROCKTOPIA” This March/April 2018

I’m quite behind about this news but in truth I had only just heard of it and it sounds like something really awesome. Take a look down below for the full on press release about ROCKTOPIA!!!!!

The Press Release:
This spring, the international music sensation ROCKTOPIA will rock Broadway for six epic weeks, March 20 – April 29, 2018 at The Broadway Theatre (1681 Broadway). ROCKTOPIA is a musical revolution that celebrates the fusion of the best rock songs of the past century with some of the greatest classical music ever written. ROCKTOPIA showcases the works of musical innovators including Mozart, Journey, Handel, U2, Tchaikovsky, Heart, Beethoven, Journey, Foreigner, Rachmaninoff, Queen, Copland, The Who and more.

“Rocktopia creates a world where Mozart and Led Zeppelin coexist” – Chicago Tribune

Created through the unique vision of vocalist and recording artist Rob Evan and Maestro Randall Craig Fleischer, a pioneer in the fusion of symphonic rock and world music, ROCKTOPIA delivers one-of-a-kind, spine-tingling musical arrangements with insanely talented lead vocalists, a 5-piece rock band, a choir of 40, and an orchestra of 20.

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. With extensive knowledge of both genres, Evan and Fleisher looked for common themes, potency, and emotional resonance in the songs before fusing them together to create explosive and moving new musical arrangements.
