Rock of Ages

What the press had to say.....

"New, relentlessly silly jukebox musical that's so willing to please." & "It's the music - performed by a hard-rocking, six-piece band - that carries the show." & "A perfect storm of cheesiness.
Frank Scheck
New York Post

"A loud, low-brow, surprisingly enjoyable show." & "Tons of retro fun for anybody loving those bygone times of big hair and even bigger power chords."
Michael Sommers

""Rock of Ages" isn't a bad show; it's just a lazy one." & "Any fan of big hair and bigger power ballads will have a blast at "Rock of Ages," but those looking for something more substantial will be disappointed."
Mark Peikert
Back Stage

"Really, "Rock of Ages" should suck. Like a thousand other shows, it takes pop songs from a particular era (in this case, the hair metal '80s) and shoves them into a flimsy plot,.. And yet, somewhere between the Styx dance break and the Twisted Sister reprise, this jukebox tuner transcends its hoary parts to become a legitimate artistic achievement. "
