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

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

Disappointing, Great singing, Banal

See it if I expected much more from this production. I found it predictable and uninspired. The actors had great voices, but the plot was weak.

Don't see it if if you are expecting a spectacular, electrifying ,and memorable show. It is not.

Fun, Fluffy, Quirky, Funny, Entertaining

See it if you love rock music, want a fun night out, and want to bop along to the music in your seat. This show is fun, irreverent,

Don't see it if you'll be annoyed by unruly audience members. This one attracts an offbeat, nontraditional crowd. But if you can join in, you'll love it.

Ambitious, Entertaining, Disappointing, Overrated, Totally 80s

See it if You're a fan of juke box musicals or 80's hair band songs. The cast gives their all, making this mildly entertaining, at best.

Don't see it if You want something of substance, don't like nostalgia--or both. This is predictable from the moment the curtain goes up.

Banal, Entertaining, Great singing, Fluffy, Indulgent

See it if If you REALLY like '80s rock and that alone is enough for you just to hear anyone singing not-always stirring versions of '80s rock anthems.

Don't see it if If you like story or need to care about characters or that there are plausible (or any) stakes. Some of the music is winning enough, but man

See it if You love the music of the 80's. And if you want to remember dressing in the 80's. Have a flashback while watching a show.

Don't see it if If you want something that has great insight or something that makes you think. This is basically a thoughtless sit back and just enjoy

"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."
