I am always wary of a rock concert set in a theater. The usual decibel level and mega lighting effects won't fit the house. Rocktopia has some great moments, but it suffers from indecision - rock show or night at the theater? Ersatz opera meets ersatz rock, resulting in a self-conscious show that works too hard and often gets in its own way.
Developed over eight years, Rocktopia is inspired by the idea that if Beethoven or Mozart were alive today, they would be modern-day rock stars.
This show has now closed. See our list of theatre tickets for shows currently on sale.
