Heaped into piles and burned by angry crowds, Of Mice and Men has been banned for offenses ranging from "vulgar language" to being "anti-business." But despite decades of controversy, this novella by Nobel winner John Steinbeck endures for one simple reason: it is a masterpiece. Now Worldwide Theatricals mounts a moving stage adaptation of Steinbeck's crowning achievement. Few stories have better captured the complexity of true friendship better than the tale of George and his dim-witted buddy Lennie. As migrant workers adrift in the Great Depression, the two dream of settling down and living "off the fatta the lan" But their plans (like all those "of mice and men") are jeopardized by hard times and the cruelties of fate.

Rock of Ages ROCKS! It was so much fun. The music and voices were great. We had a fantastic time. As I was watching the show I was thinking about how I already wanted to come see it again. The show had classic Rock and Roll music performed by a talented cast. The show was funny and made you want to sing and dance. Several costumes were quite risque, but overall I loved it. Thank you California Theater for bringing such quality entertainment to my town.

We had a great evening enjoying a fantastic performance of ROCK OF AGES. The cast had the audience totally engaged! It was our first experience at this venue. Because of its compact size, just about every seat has a good view of the stage.
Five-time Tony Award nominated musical Rock of Ages, the hit Broadway show told through the rock music of the 1980s, blasts its way into the California Theatre on April 5-6, 2012, for two performances.
It’s 1987 on the Sunset Strip, and a small town girl meets a big city rocker in L.A.’s most famous rock club, and they fall on love to some of the great music every recorded. Rock of Ages is “an arena-rock love story told through the mind-blowing, face-melting” hits of Journey, Pat Benatar, Styx, Night Ranger, REO Speedwagon, Twisted Sister, Poison, Asia, and many more.
With book by Chris D’Arienzo, the show is known for being more light-hearted and comedic than other Broadway shows, with the actors frequently addressing the audience directly and even reminding the audience they are actors in a musical.
In addition to Tony Award nominations for Best Musical, Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Musical, Best Direction of a Musical, Best Costume Design, and Best Sound Design, it also received two Drama League nominations and two Outer Critics Circle Award nominations.
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 14.
