Ready to bang my head and rock out with my c**k out!!!
Rock of Ages is a blast from the past. This show absolutely rocks! Man, it brings back memories of long hair, great music, spandex, concerts, great rock clubs, hooking up with girls, lots of drinking, and fun times. I lived this life as did many of us back in the era when the bars were hot, the music scene was hotter, and the babes were scorching! It was just a non-stop optimistic party scene and if you missed out on the 80’s you truly missed the most fun decade of outrageous music and clubbing.
The Helen Hayes Theater itself is decorated with classic rock posters and concert announcements from the era. Classic pictures of bands and rock stars adorn the walls in the lobby. As soon as you enter you are treated to great music while hitting the bars to get your drink on. Plus, they encourage drinking throughout the show while at your seat. Now that is a party! In fact, the whole time we were here it felt like one big party! The crowd was into it, people were on their feet, and singing along too. Yesssss!
The actors and actresses during the performance were terrific. Some really wonderful singing and acting along with very funny bits throughout. Many sexual innuendos had the crowd laughing it up too. The band on the stage was pretty awesome and very talented. They ripped into songs from Whitesnake, Twisted Sister, Journey, Styx, Foreigner, REO Speedwagon, Quarterflash, Bon Jovi, Quiet Riot, and many more recognizable tunes that we all know. Power pop, hair metal, and ballads to uplift your soul and melt your heart.
Be prepared to party with a mixed crowd of locals, tourists, older, and younger that still love and appreciate this music. Go to the evening show for a more energetic crowd. If you are looking for a serious Broadway production this is not for you. If you are looking a hard rocking good time then Rock of Ages is a must.
We had a great time and totally enjoyed every minute. Could not get the smile off our faces during and after the show. Amazing fun! Definitely going back again!
Bang your head! \m/
