Playing the role of STACEE JAXX in the smash hit musical ROCK OF AGES for its re-opening at the Helen Hayes Theatre.

Aussie Recording artist and ABN founding member MiG Ayesa returns to the Broadway stage playing the role of STACEE JAXX in the smash hit musical ROCK OF AGES for its re-opening at the Helen Hayes Theatre.

‘ROCK OF AGES’, playing at the Helen Hayes Theatre since 24 March, 2011 celebrated one year on Broadway as well as 5 Tony Award nominations and 267 sold out shows before hitting the road for its US tour last September, ‘rocking’ every city along the way, from Chicago to Orlando to Seattle with its sold out shows and rave reviews. ROCK OF AGES just opened in Melbourne, but the Aussie connection started before that, when MiG Ayesa won the role of ‘Stacee Jaxx’ for the 1st US National Tour. The Broadway production re-opens at its new location with MiG reprising his role as ‘Stacee Jaxx’, a role that will be played by Tom Cruise in the upcoming feature film. ‘ROCK OF AGES’ is a hair-band love story of a small town girl who meets a big city rocker on LA’s Sunset Strip’s most famous dive bar. They fall in love to the greatest songs of the ’80’s as the story is told through the mind-blowing, face melting hits of Journey, STYX, Bon Jovi, Poison, Whitesnake and many more.

MiG is also in the final stages of recording his follow-up CD, due for release very soon.

GOODBYE NEW YORK, GOODBYE HEART plays Dec 2-21 at HERE Arts Center

The Production Company presents

A new play by Lally Katz
Directed by Oliver Butler

What does it mean to be “alive” when we spend our lives in virtual worlds? In Goodbye New York, Goodbye Heart, Lally Katz plunges us into a phantasmagorical yet oh-so-recognizable cyber-universe where the living and the dead jostle, time doesn’t pass, and food never seems to fill you up. You can download almost anything – even emotions – and the dead still live, but you can’t bring them back to the real world… or can you?

Every character is affectionately drawn.” The show was also a Back Stage Critic’s Pick. NYTheatre.com hailed their production of The Australia Project as “Fascinating stuff! A brisk, swift, and necessary punch in the gut that’s both very funny and very much on target…strong performances [and] expert direction.” “Patricia Cornelius’s script is simply brilliant…Mark Armstrong’s direction is sure and crisp,” declared NYTheatre.com about the company’s production of Love.
