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.

Entertaining, Funny, Great singing, Delightful, Clever
Avg Score

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

Disappointing, Great singing, Entertaining

See it if Big-headband soft-metal group relive heyday for final performance as singer and server crank up romance.

Don't see it if Essentially a concert version of its Broadway run. What's really missing is the knock-out '80s dive-bar set.

Also Small-town-livin' girl. Lonely world. Goin' anywhere.


See it if You are looking for a night out where are you don’t have to think and you are a fan of popular music from the 1980s

Don't see it if You are looking to be challenged in anyway. This is as basic as you can get for a musical

Also I don’t see a lot of musicals. And when I think about why I don’t see ... Read more Read less

Quirky, Entertaining, Great singing, Great staging

See it if You’re a Meatloaf fan and like Rock musicals.

Don't see it if You’re looking for an easy time at the theatre..


See it if As delightfully cheesy as an innocent, yet striving to be hardcore 80s love ballad of a girl meets boy in grungy LA.

Don't see it if Dislike 80s rock/metal music / culture (women are sex objects/accessories, long hair, etc.). Very off Broadway feel with fourth wall jokes.

Also Diversity: almost all White. Two side characters are Black. Mostly wor... 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

Enchanting, Fluffy, Funny, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if Loved the 80's, big hair and rock & roll. Fun show to see with great songs, well acted. Lots of fun, makes you want to sing.

Don't see it if You never liked rock, big hair or loud music. If someone signing along bothers you, this is not the show for you. Bit raunchy, but fun.

Also I felt that this stage was to small for all that was happening on stag... Read more Read less

Great singing, Funny, Entertaining, Delightful, Clever

See it if You liked the 80s and rock. You liked the movie. Love bad 80s hair and love stories

Don't see it if You do not like 80s. Or prefer more serious fare

Cliched, Funny, Overrated, Excruciating

See it if you love 80s hair band music and enjoy fourth-grade humor

Don't see it if you you are looking for any substance

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.

Great singing, Enchanting

See it if you want to watch a classic. If you like 80's rock and roll.

Don't see it if you saw it ten years ago.

Also The play has lots of energy, I couldn't stop singing the rock anthems.... Read more Read less

Great singing, Entertaining, Clever

See it if You loved the original and HAVE to see it again - you LOVE the music - you want to see the beloved musical in an intimate theater.

Don't see it if You hate 80s rock music and 80s themes. You want to see something new and innovative - this is a revival. I would not recommend for children

Booh’s 4th step cousin twice removed, Tongue in cheek but still stupid, A walk down 80s rock memory lane, Cheesecake, A very off off broadway caliber show

See it if classic 80s rock is your go to satellite station. You’re a teen (or DOM) being given free range to ogle a woman w/o being called out.

Don't see it if arm waving, shot drinking, singing along people annoy you. Especially if it’s typically your dumb luck they’ll be in front / back of you.

Also Ok, someone has to explain this one. People panned BOOH but absolutely... Read more Read less

Great staging, Great singing, Entertaining

See it if If you are a fan of that period songs done by a great group of singers and musicians

Don't see it if You like dramas and comedies without music

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

Raunchy, Hilarious, Great singing, Entertaining

See it if You enjoy rock music from the 80s and wouldn't be offended by some risque, raunchy bits

Don't see it if You dislike rock music or want to see a drama or are offended by profanity and sexual innuendo or raunchiness.

Also The entire cast was outstanding. They all sang and acted so well I cou... Read more Read less

Absorbing, Delightful, Great singing, Funny, Entertaining

See it if A throw back to great music. Funny. Cast is great!

Don't see it if Like loud musicals.

Sweet, silly, camp, Funny

See it if You like 1980s top 40 music, boy meets girl/stardom dreams musicals

Don't see it if Nipple jokes offend you or you’re looking for a serious, deeply felt musical. This is just fun. Not appropriate for young children.

Delightful, Cliched, Great singing, Funny, Entertaining

See it if you enjoy 80s music and jukebox musicals or if you are just looking for a simple good time.

Don't see it if you are looking for a unique or less predictable story or if you do not enjoy 80s music.

Delightful, Great singing, Funny, Entertaining, Clever

See it if You like 80's music and fun, funny light hearted musicals.

Don't see it if You want a profound story line or a classic musical.

Funny, Fluffy, Great singing

See it if you love the classic, and like 80's music

Don't see it if you want a creative, deep show

Raunchy, Entertaining, Funny, Great singing

See it if you grew up listening to rock music in the 80s & 90s, this show will bring back some great memories. There are some amazing singing in this

Don't see it if you're not into 80's and 90's rock or you're incapable of letting loose and having a good time. The show doesn't take itself seriously.

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.

Quirky, Great staging, Great singing, Cliched

See it if You like 80's rock and want to feel nostalgic when listening to those songs, you like silly shows and want to have fun.

Don't see it if You dont know/ don't like any of the 80's rock songs. The whole appeal of the show is the songs, because the plot is pretty meh, very cliche

"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."
