ROCK OF AGES

star ratingstar ratingstar ratingstar ratingstar rating

Big hair rockers return to a new arena: Broadway!

Charles Isherwood, New York Times

Hair band devotees rejoice: The anthems of the '80s are back. The new musical features the hits of Journey, Bon Jovi, Styx, REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar and many more.

In 1987 on the Sunset Strip, a small-town girl met a big-city rocker, and in L.A.’s most famous rock club, they fell in love to the greatest songs of the ‘80s. This arena-rock love story is told through the mind-blowing hits of Journey, Bon Jovi, Poison and many more.

Dates

Opening night: 17 March 2009

Closing night: 3 January 2011

Audience

Rock of Ages is a full-out, blast-off, hold-onto-your-hairspray celebration of the great rock music of the 80s, and you might be wondering - or, admit it, hoping - your kids will love it as much as you will.

Well, we think they will, but you should know that some of the costumes, dancing and language might not be appropriate for kids under the age of 13.

We think teenagers will dig it, because it's totally awesome, sort of like a music video brought to life, complete with hot dancers and blazing guitar licks. You know the maturity of your children, so we suggest you use your best judgment about whether or not the show is appropriate for them. Remember, if you do bring them, they'll get to see you rockin' like you did back in the day. Just so you know.

Run time

2 hours 20 minutes with one 10 minute intermission.
