Rock Of Ages Theater Show Review

                                                


It was a great evening 
Great Storyline...Great Songs...Great Cast...
Perfect Musical for me... 

Connie and Carolyn @ Rock Of Ages
Rock of Ages Theater Show was an experience I won't soon forget.  From winning VIP All Access tickets, to sitting in on the soundcheck prior to the show...Pre-show food/drinks...Perfect seats(2nd row)...Meet and Greet After Show

...I was in Heaven

Rock Of Ages is basically a love letter to Hairband music and the Sunset Strip of the ’80s.
Narrator Lonny sets up the story: In 1987, an aspiring rocker named Drew Bowie works as a busboy in the Hollywood bar/club called The Bourbon Room, owned by Dennis Dupree ("Just Like Paradise/Nothing But A Good Time"). He falls instantly for a girl, Sherrie, who just arrived from Kansas hoping to make it big in acting ("Sister Christian"). After being hired as a waitress in the club, Sherrie urges Drew to go after his dreams ("I Wanna Rock").
(read a Full summary of the story-line here)

I do love theater...
I thought Wicked was fab

I think Rock Of Ages RULED

Relating to the character, Sherrie, I allowed myself to sink right into the storyline...FUN!

Constantine was intense!  His performance as Drew was on the mark and seemed to really draw in the crowd.  Meeting him after the show made a great ending to the night

I'm also so excited to learn that Rock Of Ages will be a Movie with a release in 2012.  So, if you can't get a chance to see the musical, now you'll get to see the movie!

Holy Cow! I totally missed this post before now! That show was obviously amazing! I hadn't made the connection that you actually got to see the show with Constantine! That's quite a win for you:)

Ooh, this seems so cool! I've never heard these songs (or, to be honest, I've never heard of the musical), but I must admit I'm a little bit jealous! :)
