She was just a small-town girl, living in a lonely world ... until arriving on the Sunset Strip circa 1987, where she meets a big-city boy. Nominated for five 2009 Tony Awards including Best Musical and called "insanely fun" by Time Out New York, the Broadway smash hit Rock of Ages follows two teens with big dreams and even bigger hair as they face speed bumps on the road to love, set to the music of Journey, Night Ranger, Styx, REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar and more. This hilarious, high-energy production includes such classic '80s hits as "Don't Stop Believin'," "We Built This City," "The Final Countdown," "Wanted Dead or Alive," "Here I Go Again," "Can't Fight This Feeling" and "I Want to Know What Love Is." You won't want to miss this awesomely fun show about dreaming big, playing loud and partying on. Learn More

Same impression as the other writers regarding the venue, but worse because the two viewing screens at the side of the stage were not operating during this performance. I'm giving this three stars only because the performers were very good, from what little I could see of them; I spent most of the first act staring at the back of the head of the person in front of me. It was also very annoying that a number of people were getting up during the first act to scout out better seats, then coming back to get their companions who caused further disruptions when they got up. I don't blame them, though. I would recommend seeing a performance at the Grove only if you can get front row seats or are over seven feet tall.

Audiences will experience a spectacle of towering Christmas trees, waltzing flowers, battling toy soldiers and menacing mice. The enduring theme remains unchanged — good overcomes evil—but Anaheim Ballet's staging of the family classic is constantly updated, which keeps the production fresh, even for returning audiences. The story is a source of inspiration for audiences of all ages and interests.
