Producers said on Tuesday that Zuckerberg will play community leader Regina, notes The Associated Press.

According to Broadway World, the producers are also celebrating the show’s fifth anniversary with a social media celebration that starts on March 14 and ends on April 14, the same dates Zuckerberg will perform. The party is called “#RockofAge5.”
“Every performance, for the last five years, has delivered an incredible on-stage and audience experience earning the show its title as Broadway's Best Party,” producer Matthew Weaver said. “So for the next 4 weeks, kicking off with Randi Zuckerberg, we're going to be 'sharing' the love with our audiences with a ton of fun surprises.”
Rock of Ages opened on Broadway in April 2009 at the The Brooks Atkinson Theatre. It moved to the Helen Hayes Theatre in January 2011.
