It was great when Smashing Pumpkins got back together, but for us, Rocktoberfest and Rock of Ages are the year’s best rock revivals.
Back in 2011, AKA developed a monthlong celebration for the Broadway run of Rock of Ages, and now that the show has been revived at New World Stages, Rocktoberfest returned as well. For all of October, tickets were $69, and the show offered special events like lip sync battles, prize giveaways, and trivia nights. AKA was the idea lead for all programming, and we collaborated with the larger Rock of Ages team to make the executions killer, as they might say on the Strip.
It’s been a blast to work on Rock of Ages across so many years, and we loved rocking so hard in October.
