Rock of Ages is a light-hearted look at the Sunset Strip scene of the 80's steeped in the seedy underbelly of sex, drugs and rock-n-roll. The music is definitely the star, and the backing band is stellar, the leads are spirited and the dancing -- raunchy. All of this adds up to a show that is fun for the reminiscing adults, but highly inappropriate for kids. (Sex in a bathroom stall, strip club with lap dances, brandishing numbchucks as mock genitalia). This show is probably not appropriate for kids under 17. Just a heads up for parents, as I am still a little disturbed this morning after seeing some of kids in attendance. If this were a movie, it would be rated NC-17.
Having said that, this a a romp through some of the great classic rock songs. The female lead was especially charasmatic and Constantine Maroulis, a former American Idol contestant, performed well. The narrator was welcome comic relief from some heavy topics like missed signals in love, shattered dreams, and the attempted corporate takeover of rock-n-roll. It dragged a little in the second act with an over-reliance on cliches, but the German corporate raider-turned-choclatier was a show-stopper in his blue, sparkly unitard. Go for a good time night out, but leave the kids with the sitter.

We were initially bummed that Constantine was not performing, but his understudy did a great job! The story was light hearted and the tongue in cheek humor was well done. They made cliche story and characters fun with familiar music. musicians...continued
Quotes & Highlights

In 1987 on the Sunset Strip, a small-town girl met a big-city dreamer – and in L.A.’s most legendary rock club, they fell in love to the greatest songs of the ‘80s. It’s Rock of Ages, a hilarious, feel-good love story told through the hit songs of iconic rockers Journey, Styx, REO Speedwagon, Foreigner, Pat Benatar, Whitesnake and many more. Don’t miss this awesomely good time when Rock of Ages makes its debut at Segerstrom Center for the Arts when big hair meets big dreams and the result totally wails.
Coming to you direct from Broadway, Tony Award nominee Constantine Maroulis of American Idol fame will reprise his acclaimed performance as Drew in the First National Tour of the five-time Tony Award nominated smash-hit musical Rock of Ages_. Rolling Stone says, “_Rock of Ages has found a perfect lead in Maroulis,” and so like Bartles & Jaymes, big hair and Dep, some things are just meant for each other.
