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.

Funny, Entertaining, Fluffy, Silly, Rockin'

See it if 80s hair bands, their music & fashion, and fun mean anything to you. If you were born at the right time, this is your childhood soundtrack.

Don't see it if you want depth, meaning, or some message beyond "Rock On!" in your shows. Like a one-night stand, this is simply a no-strings good time.

Banal, Dizzying, Excruciating, Overrated, Raunchy

I wanna rock!!!!

See it if You are into 80's hair metal music. Best version of a juke box musical because the songs are the biggest hits from the 80's hair metal genre

Don't see it if You are looking for an interesting plot or character development.. The music is the only reason to go see this and it's reason enough

Great music, Fun, Corny, Entertaining, Lowbrow

See it if you love 80s music & just want a fun night out. This is dumb fun. I had a blast & listen to the cast recording all the time.

Don't see it if you're looking for something intelligent & highbrow. This is not a show for stuffy theater snobs.

"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."
