In THE ROCKET MAN SHOW, Scotsman Rus Anderson honors Elton John with killer vocals, fierce piano playing, and classic Elton antics. Rus painstakingly recreates a 1970s Elton concert with gorgeous, colorful, and flamboyant replicas of costumes that Elton wore in the 70s. Rus was handpicked by Elton John to be his official body double for the videos and photos used in Elton’s Farewell Yellow Brick Road world tour; Rus re-created iconic moments from Elton’s iconic career in virtual reality for the tour.

*$10 seats are for second dress circle location ONLY.  There will be an additional $3 service fee added when purchasing by phone or via the PPAC website.
