Costars Joe Pantoliano and Rodrick Covington on bringing music history to life


Deejay Alan Freed didn't invent rock 'n' roll, but he did spread its gospel. The new musical Rock & Roll Man tells his incredible, undersung story through some of the greatest hits of all time, including "Tutti Frutti," "Maybellene," "Great Balls of Fire" and "Why Do Fools Fall in Love." Rodrick Covington plays the legendary Little Richard, one of Freed's fiercest allies, while Joe Pantoliano portrays two men who changed his life, one for the better, the other for the worse. Join us on Thursday, July 6 at 3 p.m. ET on our Facebook page or our YouTube channel as we bring these colorful castmates together for a freewheeling chat about the music they love, audience sing-alongs and their funniest tales about their costar, Constantine Maroulis. Captions will be available.
