“A seriously silly, absurdly enjoyable arena-rock musical... I never would have guessed that wine coolers could age this well!”– New York Times
Amidst the legendary Hollywood rock clubs of the Sunset Strip, aspiring rock star Drew longs to take the stage as the next big thing (and longs for small-town girl Sherri, fresh off the bus from Kansas with stars in her eyes). But their rock and roll fairy-tale is about to end when German developers sweep into town with plans to turn the fabled Strip into a strip mall.But if we learned one thing from the 80s ... Don’t stop believing.
“Even doubters will be wiping tears from their Wayfarers. Rock of Ages is the power-ballad decade in all its glory, tricked out with big perms, bigger dreams, and the kind of operatic ecstasy you read about only in bathroom stalls.” – Entertainment Weekly
