Rock of Ages: "Rock of Ages" is a rock musical in which a small town girl and a city boy meet on the Sunset Strip in 1987 while pursuing their Hollywood dreams. The glam metal/heavy music of the 80's saves a once famous club, a budding romance, a famous rock star and old dreams. Built around classic rock songs of the 1970's, the show features songs from Styx, Journey, Bon Jovi, Pat Benatar, Twisted Sister, Steve Perry, Poison and Europe, among other well-known rock bands.

The Sunshine Boys: Al and Willie as "Lewis and Clark" were top-billed vaudevillians for over forty years. Now they aren't even speaking. When CBS requests them for a "History of Comedy" retrospective, a grudging reunion brings the two back together, along with a flood of memories, miseries, and laughs. The story follows the attempt by a young theatrical agent to re-unite his elderly uncle, a former vaudevillian great, with his long-time stage partner for a TV reunion. Despite their celebrated reputation, the two old men have not spoken in twelve years. Besides remastering their sketch, the two men have numerous issues to work out before they are ready to return to the public eye.
