Brilliant songs constructed around a very weak story and acting to match. Save some money and download the songs on your I-pod and dance in your living room. Disappointed with the swearing and sexual innuendo, although those things are traditionally linked with rock and roll there was no warning anywhere that would be included in the show. We were thinking... More

Personally, I just don't understand the good reviews Rock of Ages has got. It was the most awful show I've ever seen, we walked out after 40 minutes just feeling quite ill. Musical? They started to sing a song and then stopped to shout, make rude and suggestive comments/actions, no story line, no singing, no anything, just total rubbish.

Didn't know what to expect but it blew my mind! I really got the feeling to go out and do something, not sit around waiting for things to happen:) A lot of good old rock music and great actors! They also have special deals for students:)

This show has now closed but it was the best musical by far. Saw it over 50 times and saw it on the closing night a lot of tears by everyone. Going to see rock of ages on tour in November who knows if this is has good but never the less I'm going to enjoy it .

This is probably the best show I've seen for a very long time. Saw it yesterday at Grand Opera House in York. Superb cast, great music, will definitely watch it again in the future!

Just saw this show at the Woking Victoria Theatre and absolutely loved it from start to finish. Found it utterly hilarious (Lonny/the 'narrator' and Franz were especially funny), with bags of style and charm, not to mention great music! All the performances/characters were strong and well-delineated and the standard of singing (in particular that of Noel Sullivan and Rachel McFarlane)... More

Saw this at Milton Keynes. I dragged Hubby along with me, to be honest before the show he didn't have very high expectations as not really into shows but by the end he was up on his feet with the rest of the theatre dancing & clapping to the music. We LOVED it!!! We found it funny, it had great... More
