After Hours worked with the Broadway team behind ‘Rock of Ages’ to conceptualize, write, and produce an immersive preshow designed to immerse guests into the world of the 1987 Sunset Strip.
“A retro record store sells show souvenirs, and a faux-tattoo chair offers patrons shots of bourbon with any temporary markings. Actors from the immersive theater company After Hours casually play characters that might have inhabited the same world as those in “Rock of Ages,” improvising with patrons before they even see a stage.”
Ashley Lee, Los Angeles Times
"In fact, each night isn't just a show, it's a unique event reflecting not only the skill of the cast but also the rocking mood of the audience. Before and during the show, guests enjoy a beer, cocktails or upscale bar food as a team of immersive actors bring the Sunset Strip of the 1980s to life."
Shari Barrett, Broadway World
When you arrive at The Bourbon Room, there are multiple ways to interact with the actors before the performance begins. You can get a “tattoo” (temporary, of course) or a “fake ID,” or simply explore the stylish space, which also includes a separate bar open to the public that was hosting a night of live piano music following the performance attended for this review."
