Packers to 'star' on Broadway next week
By Rob Demovsky
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- With Super Bowl XLVIII in the New York area, there's sure to be a few Green Bay Packers players spotted in and round the Big Apple next week.
It's a safe bet nobody figured they'd be seeing them in a Broadway musical. However, that's exactly where Packers receiver Randall Cobb and former Packers running back Ahman Green will be playing next week.
They will join the cast of the five-time Tony Award-nominated musical Rock of Ages at the Helen Hayes Theater next week, show producers announced Friday.
Cobb's appearance will come during the 7 p.m. show Tuesday. Green will appear in the matinee show Feb. 1. Detroit Lions running back Joique Bell also will appear in a show Wednesday, and other players are expected to be added to the bill.
There's nothing in Cobb's bio to suggest he has any stage experience. However, he does list listening to music as one of his hobbies.
