Show Notes
Rock of Ages is a full-out, blast-off, hold-onto-your-hairspray celebration of the great rock music of the 80s, and you might be wondering – or, admit it, hoping – your kids will love it as much as you will. Well, you should know that some of the costumes, dancing and language might not be appropriate for kids under the age of 14. You know the maturity of your children, so we suggest you use your best judgment about whether or not the show is appropriate for them. Children under the age of 4 are not permitted in the theatre.

Tucked almost shamefully into a subterranean, antiseptic lair at the New World Stages complex, the Off-Broadway iteration was a raucous but chintzy affair, meeting your appallingly low expectations but never rising above so-bad-it's-good status. Your smug sense of superiority emerged unscathed. Now, unleashed in all its defiant glory on the Great Whitesnake Way, the grandiosity, the absurdity, the audacity of it all is just too overwhelming, lethal in its charm even for those cloaked in full ironic-detachment body armor.

- Rob Havrilla, Village Voice
Written with winky wit by Chris D’Arienzo, directed with zest by Kristin Hanggi, sung with scorching heat by a spirited cast, and featuring a towering stack of heavy-rotation favorites from the glory years of MTV — hits from Journey and Bon Jovi, Pat Benatar and Poison, Whitesnake and Twisted Sister — this karaoke comedy about warped-vinyl dreams is about as guilty as pleasures get. Call it Xanadu for straight people — and straight-friendly people too....Rock of Ages does not possess the deadpan brilliance of the classic mock-doc This Is Spinal Tap (what does?), and two-plus hours may seem a long time to spend inside a David Lee Roth video. But in These Straitened Economic Times the allure of nostalgia cannot be underestimated.

- Charles Isherwood, The New York Times
