About the show

The original Broadway hit production is back to celebrate its 10th anniversary. This five-time Tony Award-nominated musical features an electric score full of classic ‘80s rock anthems. More…

"Rock of Ages" tells the story of a small-town girl, a city boy, and a rock ‘n’ roll romance on the Sunset Strip. But when the bar where rock reigns supreme is set to be demolished, it’s up to these wannabe rockers and their band of friends to save the day – and the music. "Rock of Ages" features such hits as "Every Rose Has Its Thorn," "I Wanna Know What Love Is," "Here I Go Again," "Don't Stop Believin’," and many more.

Nostalgic (for some), Great singing, Banal, Insipid, Fluffy

See it if you enjoy 80s hair band karaoke; you "Can't fight this feeling" for "Nothin' but a good time".

Don't see it if you don't have some drinks before (and during) the show; you prefer erudition to pure, unabashed frivolity.

Also This was a really hard show to score... Production-wise, this 10th ann... Read more Read less

Cliched, Insipid, Great performances, Weak story, Fun music

See it if you love 80s music and don't care that the songs are weaved around a laughably bad story line. If you can let that go, you'll have fun

Don't see it if you want a decent plot and any sort of character development. While it may have been fun, it could have been so much better

Also I LOVE 80s music and I should have loved this show, but I just couldn'... Read more Read less

Fluffy, Funny, Cliched, Banal, Delightful

See it if you want a cheesy show with 80s rock music and over-the-top acting.

Don't see it if you want a more serious show with three-dimensional characters and a more substantive plot.

Hokey, Disappointing, Dated

See it if you love 80s rock and like to sing along. The story is too hokey for words, the jokes are dumb, but the rock is good. And loud.

Don't see it if You don't like loud rock music or dialog/plot meant only to hold the songs together. Lots of old fans in the audience; I was not one of them

Great acting, Entertaining, Hilarious, Great singing

See it if You love, love the 80's and the music of that time period. You will want to dance and sing along the entire time. You will make friends here

Don't see it if You don't like racy sexual scenes or want something intellectual. Not good young children; should be at least 16 to see this.

Banal, Funny

Great acting, Funny, Great singing, Entertaining, Clever

See it if you loved the PLAY and LOATHED THE MOVIE - this is a smaller but still GREAT version of the 10 year old show

Don't see it if you dont want to ROCK HARD and LOUDLY - you're allergic to spandex & glitter and booby jokes.....

Disappointing, Banal, Overrated, Fluffy, Dated

Don't see it if dislike "poser" 80's hair band rock'n'roll - looking for something fairly intelligent

Silly mindless happiness

See it if You love to smile. ROA is mindless fun for those who lived or loved the 80s and its tunes. Be ready to laugh and love the characters

Don't see it if You want deep and meaningful theater, this show doesn’t try to be more than it is...which is nothing but a good time

Refreshing, Hilarious, Ambitious, Great singing, Funny

See it if you absolutely love 80s rock. they sing all the 80s rock classics and the main characters are very silly and charming.

Don't see it if you hate rock music and don't really care for the cliche "chase your dream in LA" storyline.

Excruciating, Overrated, Disappointing, Dated, Cliched

See it if You like 80s tunes along with a really cliched love story.

"You go to 'Rock of Ages' for its music, not its plots…or its string of incessantly raunchy juvenilia…The music, though, if it's up your alley, certainly shivers the timbres [sic!] with a succession of vocally explosive and physically dynamic performances."
