Didn't particularly like the play itself. The lead character was a good actor, but I hated the high pitched accents of the ladies. Saw only one act.

I think the actors were exceptional and spoke with deep intellect. It was different from other plays I've seen. Because of the title, I was expecting some musical dance and song along with the plot, but it was mainly about the record songs...continued

I just went to see The Arsonists in the Aurora Theater. It was boring... Then I decided to bring my friend to see Rock and Roll, we loved it!! I think these guys worked so hard to bring this performance to life. This is not an easy playfull comedy...continued
