Best show I have seen this year. The couple in the seats right in front of us got "discount" tickets online. They had paid double the price we had paid, so I took the opportunity to recruit two more Goldstar members.

The show was slower paced during the first half, but was great the second. The musicians are extremely talented as we ll as the cast.

'Rock of Ages' was out of this world - the music, dancing and energy of the cast was first rate. It was like "Hair" but from an '80's perspective.

n 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 the Fox Theatre 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.
