I wore a silk suit and my husband wore a dress jacket and pants. People are dressing rather sloppy for the theater lately. It is a special place and I enjoy seeing the folks dressed up. It makes it seem more special..

Mitsua Market on Paularino, 1.5 blocks east of Bristol on the South side of the 405 has a great food court with all kinds of Japanese Food available. The market has a great "to-go" sushi fare and in the early evening most of the sushi, made that afternoon, is marked down for a quick sale. I especially like the noodle shop closest to the check out stands of the Market, and their spicy Pork Noodles are terrific. More expensive and the best in the food court is the noodle shop in the middle of the court, about 3 stalls to the right of the first noodle shop, to the right of it, is a stall that has a great tempura, teriyaki combo, that I've enjoyed for years. Mitsua Market has wonderful desserts with shops specializing in frozen mochi and pastries, as well as fare only found in Japan. In fact, going to Mitsua is to be transported to an authentic Japanese SuperMarket and Food Court.

Having seen this 2 weeks ago with Constantine up in L.A. and enjoying it so much, I decided to see it again in Costa Mesa.

Constantine didn't perform last night. A swing performed the lead last night instead.

And the difference was night...continued

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 --...continued

Thought the show was good, not great. Had good seats but felt acoustics were not the best...some of the narrating was muffled.Singer that played "Regina" had an irritating, "screechy" voice. Biggest disappointment....understudy instead of...continued

Description

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.
