This is going to be sooooo good!
From ABC Air Power:
Longtime Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider is the latest well-known rocker to sign on to appear as a featured singer in the just-launched Broadway production Rocktopia, which combines classic rock with classical music. The glam-metal veteran’s stint with the show will run from April 9 to April 15, and will mark Snider’s return to the Broadway stage after performing in Rock of Ages in late 2010 and early 2011.
As previously reported, Rocktopia features a variety of accomplished vocalists performing with a 20-piece orchestra, a rock band and a 40-person choir. The show’s repertoire includes songs by Journey, Queen, U2, Aerosmith, Heart, Led Zeppelin and The Who, as well as classical works from composers such as Mozart, Handel, Tchaikovsky, Beethoven and Copland. Snider also is expected to sing at least one classic Twisted Sister song during his stint.
Rocktopia‘s six-week run began March 20 at New York’s Broadway Theater, while its official opening took place this past Tuesday, March 27. Train singer Pat Monahan currently is a featured guest singer in the production through a performance on April 8. Cheap Trick‘s Robin Zander will be the featured singer from April 23 through closing night on April 29.
