Rock of Ages Reviews
Written on September, 01st 2012
Let me start by saying that parents bringing the kiddies and those over 65 need to avoid this show at all costs. This show is about the 80s and everything "bad" associated with the era. There is drinking, smoking, "bad" language and sexual innuendos. (If you don't know what the word means than get off your butt and look it up!!)
NOTE: Most audience members are in their late 30s, 40s and 50s. This is NOT a show for teenagers or younger children or for uptight adults without a sense of humor!
Now for those of us who are a product of the 1980s be ready to be transported back to "our" time. Yes, the story line is lame to say the least, but, it provides a lot of trips down memory lane and a few good hard laughs along the way. However, without a question this show is about the music, and, you aren't a fan of 80s music then you will hate this show.

Brilliant, fun and a laugh a minute. This musical rocks!! Grew up in the 80's and just loved it. The cast was spot on, the singing fantastic. I would take my 14 year old to see it - forewarned of course. Have now seen it 4 times. My older girls rock away and just love it. A good fun night had by all. Recommend it!

I spent a lot of time in the LA Rock Scene at the end of this era and when I walked into the theater, the set was perfect! The show was funny with great music, great singers and I'm not an Idol fan, but Constatine was great! Isaw 7 show in that week and this was by far the most rowdy. Drinks served by waiters, a concert atmosphere. It a great date night even if your spouse hates "the theater". A must see for rockers who made it through the hair spray fog!

Rock of Ages is one of the best broadway musicals I have ever seen. It was upbeat and exciting. The music was awesome and kept you involved the entire time. The cast was very talented! I would 100% recommend seeing this new musical!!

Play was GREAT!!! Story of kids that move to LA to try and make something of themselves, laced in with songs that bring you back to a place in time with bad hair, worst clothes.....but FUN music! Music that took me back to high school, a time of no bills to pay, good times, good friends, and plain innocent FUN!!!

Being a chick from the 80s who still totally loves 80s hair bands - it was fun! A real kick. I would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoyed and continues to enjoy the music of our time!!!! Rock On!

Just saw this tonight. Had no idea what to expect. It was AWESOME. I really havent ever had that much fun at a show. Totally going back to see it again and bringing new (old 80's high school friends). It was fun, funny, great singing, rocking bods on the girls. Every person leaving the theater was smiling and commenting how great it was. FANTASTIC

This was the best show we have seen in quite some time!!
The music was terrific and it was fun to sing along with the songs we grew up with. The casting was superb and the story was good too. A must-see for anyone who likes to rock!! We would absolutely see it again.
