Randi Zuckerberg to star in Broadway's 'Rock of Ages'

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - New York native Randi Zuckerberg, sister of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, has always wanted to sing on Broadway.  She's finally getting her turn this week in 'Rock of Ages.'

"It's always been my dream to be on Broadway. I was a theater geek in high school. If you asked me when I was seven or eight years old what I wanted to do in my life I would have said I wanted to sing on Broadway," said Zuckerberg.

The dream was re-kindled after Zuckerberg gave a talk about how Broadway could enter the social media arena.

"Theater is really the last remaining industry that isn't doing that (engaging in some way online, digitally)" said Zuckerberg.

The producers of 'Rock of Ages' got wind of Zuckerberg's talent and asked her to take part in the show.

Opening night is Friday.

"We've been rehearsing around the clock. It is so far outside my comfort zone. I have so much respect for what these actors, stage managers and choreographers do every day," said Zuckerberg who will be singing 'We're Not Going to Take It.'

Zuckerberg will be performing at the Helen Hayes Theater on West 44th Street in a two-week run.
