Rock of Ages Musical was great!
« on: November 07, 2012, 11:58:41 AM »
I went to the Rock of Ages Musical last night and it was awesome. Just I was in playing in the band!

Seriously fun, all 80's rock tunes I grew up listening to.

They really sing well, and the band is very good. No pre-recorded stuff - it's all live.

Go see it if it comes to your town! Just beware, there's a lot of swearing and half-naked ladies. :)

It's the tail end of the big, bad 1980s in Hollywood, and the party has been raging hard. Aqua Net, Lycra, lace and liquor flow freely at one of the Sunset Strips last legendary venues, a place where sex machine Stacee Jaxx takes the stage and scantily clad groupies line up to turn their fantasies into reality. Amidst the madness, aspiring rock star (and resident toilet cleaner) Drew longs to take the stage as the next big thing (and longs for small-town girl Sherri, fresh off the bus from Kansas with stars in her eyes). But the rock and roll fairy-tale is about to end when German developers sweep into town with plans to turn the fabled Strip into just another capitalist strip mall. Can Drew, Sherri and the gang save the strip–and themselves–before it's too late? Only the music of hit bands Styx, Journey, Bon Jovi, Whitesnake and more hold the answer.

What is Rock of Ages Like?
Channeling every totally rad '80s cliché in the book, Rock of Ages is superfluous silliness at its best. A high-energy dive into a living, breathing music video, the show–which never takes itself seriously–races quickly along, riding high on nostalgia and hairspray. The live band onstage and playlist of karaoke-friendly classics (as well as the drinks served seat-side during the show) encourage plenty of audience participation.

Is Rock of Ages Good for Kids?
With its abundance of T&A (read: sexy groupies and scenes set in a retro-style strip club) and occasionally mature (but mainly immature) content, consider this a good night to call a babysitter. Besides, the lyrical genius of bands like Twisted Sister and Asia is wasted on the young. The show is suggested for 14 and up.
