NEW YORK – Constantine Maroulis returned to Broadway’s “Rock of Ages,” on August 4 for a run that lasts until October 26, 2014.
The Greek-American entertainer was nominated for a Tony award in what the New York Daily News called “a jukebox musical romance woven with ’80s songs by hair bands like Journey, Styx and Whitesnake.”
Maroulis, 38, told the News “Audiences come in expecting that there will be lots of hair and high notes from me…They sure get that,” but they also “leave inspired…“having rooted for an underdog character who … comes out the winner.”
He plays Drew “a wannabe musician getting by as a janitor.”
The energetic Maroulis was born in Brooklyn and raised in New Jersey. In his “spare time” he plays in two softball leagues and is daddy to 3-year-old daughter Malena, who lives with Maroulis and her mom, actress Angel Reed, in Manhattan. “It’s been a crazy ride,” he says.
