We recently took a little trip to London to see the hit musical ‘Rock of Ages’ and just had to come straight back and rave to you all about our amazing time…If you were thinking of going to see something fun and love a bit of good old fashioned ROCK then look no further!
Rock of Ages is an absolute blast from start to finish. It has a fast paced mix of humour, touching scenes and of course a kick ass soundtrack!! It features familiar songs from all your favourite rock acts and we absolutely guarantee that you’ll be singing and dancing along by the end. We certainly were!
Be prepared to just embrace the fun and take in the silly antics which will leave you in fits of giggles. From the hilarious Stacee Jaxx to the equally awesome Drew, Sherrie, Denny Dupree and the unforgettable Lonny, your narrator for the night.
Each and every one of the performances, from the leading roles to the ensemble and the band were faultless. They are believable, full of emotion and you find yourself completely immersed in your own little bubble of rocking great tunes!
ROCK OF AGES the musical is written by Chris D’Arienzo, directed by Kristin Hanggi and choreographed by Kelly Devine. Scenic design is by Beowulf Boritt, costume design is by Tony Award nominee Gregory Gale, lighting design is by Jason Lyons, sound design is by Tony Award nominee Peter Hylenski, and projection design is by Zachary Borovay.
Five times nominated for the prestigious Tony Awards in the US (including ‘Best Musical’), ROCK OF AGES the musical is a celebration of Los Angeles rock culture, with a great story to boot. Set in 1987, a small town girl meets a big city rocker in LA’s most famous rock club and they fall in love to some of the greatest songs of the decade – all classic tracks which will have London rockin’ for more.
A much anticipated film of the musical, directed by Adam Shankman (Hairspray), is now well into production, starring Russell Brand, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Alec Baldwin and Tom Cruise.
