According to Broadwayworld.com, TWISTED SISTER's Dee Snider is rumored to be joining the "Rock Of Ages" cast on Broadway for a 10-week stint. BroadwayGirlNYC, a self-proclaimed "chick who has lucked into a life near Broadway," writes on her blog, "I have it on good authority that Dee Snider, lead rocker of TWISTED SISTER, will be joining the 'Rock Of Ages' cast. It isn't permanent, but this is no one-night stand. Dee is in the final stages of talks to be a Broadway rocker for 10 weeks!...My sources also tell me that Tuesday nights will be extra special — Dee Snider will be doing something special for fans after the show along the lines of Q&As and talk-backs."
This post came on the heels of these tweets from Snider himself: "Long day of rehearsals! Remembering lines, stage blocking and choreography is kicking my ass! I can do it!"
Dee Snider joined the cast of the Broadway musical "Rock Of Ages" on July 14, 2010 at the quarterfinals of "America's Got Talent" to perform the TWISTED SISTER classic "I Wanna Rock". Watch video footage of the performance below.
The "Rock Of Ages" cast is led by former "American Idol" finalist Constantine Maroulis, who starred in the musical's Broadway production that won five Tony Awards.
The show is propelled by signature '80s rock anthems popularized by JOURNEY, TWISTED SISTER, JOAN JETT, PAT BENATAR, FOREIGNER, BON JOVI and REO SPEEDWAGON.
The producers described the musical as such: "It's the late 1980s and the final countdown is on for a legendary Hollywood rock club facing its demise at the hands of eager developers. When a young rocker hungry for his big break and a small town girl chasing her dreams land on the scene at this infamous venue, how far will ambition drive them? And will it be lights out for the club and all the regulars and rockers who have made it their home?"
