Get ready theatre fans. Or should I say rock fans. Your favorite show and mine is set to return to Broadway tonight. The show which first opened Off-Broadway in the fall of 2008 before making the move to the Great White Way in March 2009 is in a word...awesome. Now being a huge fan of 80's rock music I knew I was going to love it. How could you not? Featuring twenty-eight of the best songs from the 1980's Rock of Ages takes place in The Bourbon Room, a bar/club on L.A.'s Sunset Strip.
Now I'll admit that as much as I love the show I wasn't sure if it was the type of show that Broadway audiences usually go for. Well guess what? They have. Not only that but the show is attracting people that might never have gone to a Broadway show in the first place. Face it. Great music is great music. No matter where it comes from.Rock of Ages is a celebration of the 80's and all it's grittiness's.
It's sexy and raunchy and allows you to have fun and let go of all your inhibitions.(It's a good thing they serve alcohol during the show to help you along)Is the show good for young kids? Probably not but why are you taking your kids in the first place? Enjoy a night out on the town for once. Remember what is was like to have fun and let your hair down. That is what Rock of Ages is all about. Bret Michaels got it right."Don't need nothing but a good time." I couldn't have said it better myself.
