Arriving on Broadway we sadly say goodbye to some of the original cast and welcome aboard the 2009 freshman class of Rock of Ages.
In the role of Sherrie we have the young broadway veteran Amy Spanger, formerly of The Wedding Singer, Urinetown, Kiss Me Kate and Chicago, to name a few. We hear she’s a true triple threat - singer/dancer/comedienne. And I’m sure she can rock a stripper pole, hungarian or not!
Next, filling the big boots (and codpiece) of Stacee Jaxx, there’s James Carpinello. James’ work includes Saturday Night Fever, The Rocky Horror Show and Romeo & Juliet. He’s a dude who really knows how to treat a girl, or llama.
New guys in the ensemble are Michael Minarik (of Les Miserable), Jeremy No. 2, Jeremy Jordan (a B’way Virgin), Andre Ward (Xanadu, Saturday Night Fever, The Producers)
And The Venus Club and Bourbon Room have just hired on Ercika Hunter (another B’way newcomer), and Katherine Tokarz (White Christmas, A Chorus Line, Wicked)
We wish them nothing but a good time!
