Jersey Boys in Pittsburgh

Posted on

“Jersey Boys” is in the middle of a 3-week run at Benedum Center!  The mark of a theatrical presentation is whether you would want to see it again!

“Jersey Boys” is like “Phantom of the Opera” or “Lion King” – you are eager to return again and again.  Almost every guest that was enjoying dinner before last weeks performance had already seen it in New York, Las Vegas, San Francisco or on it’s last trip to Pittsburgh!

There is no better way get to the theater than on our complimentary limousine that will be waiting for you after the show to whisk you back to our restaurant.  Our free parking and limousine service after a great dinner really makes a theater night special and memorable!

ROCK OF AGES
Tuesday, November 23rd 2010 – Sunday, November 28th 2010 at the Benedum Center
“Impossible to resist! As guilty as pleasures get!”-The New York Times

In 1987 on the Sunset Strip, a small town girl met a big city rocker and in LA’s most famous rock club, they fell in love to the greatest songs of the ‘80s. It’s five time 2009 Tony® Award nominee ROCK OF AGES, an arena-rock love story told through the mind-blowing, face-melting hits of Journey, Night Ranger, Styx, REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar, Twisted Sister, Poison, Asia, Whitesnake and many more!
We think your kids will have a great time at Rock of Ages, but some of the costumes, dancing and language may not be appropriate for kids under the age of 14.
