Saw Rock of Ages early last year and had to see it again on this trip and so glad we did. Just as much fun the second time around, the cast and music are brilliant. The standards haven't slipped and as the audience relaxed into the show in the first half the cast responded and the second act was just... More

80's rock music - what's not to like..?! Of course the plot could be better, but the actors/singers/dancers are good and the music is enjoyable (even though their version of The Final Countdown was strangely boring and lacking power...). Haven't been to other shows on Broadway, so can't compare, but if you want easy entertainment and some fun - this... More

This is a must see play for anyone who grew up in the 80's! I took my son here for his first play (16 yrs old) and he absolutely loved it! This play will have you laughing from beginning to end!

This if by far and away the best stage show I have ever seen. Saw this for the first time in London and then again on Broadway. Excellent selection of 80's songs to really get the audience going, some superb performances and many laugh out loud moments. I wouldn't hesitate to see this for a third time if I get... More

Fun was had by all. Great music! Great fun! 80s flash back. Go to Sardi's before the show for some great drinks!

I have been to many, many Broadway shows and didn't feel I needed to see this one. Boy, was I wrong. This is one of my favorites; the music and the singing are incredible, the acting is very strong and the story is very appealing. I was captivated from the beginning to the end. This is a MUST-SEE. It is... More

This was my first trip to New York and my first visit to see a performance on Broadway. It was amazing!! We managed to get front row seats on the balcony. I hadnt seen the film so didnt know what to expect.I loved every minute of it.

I was dancing in my seat and singing to the eighties songs of my youth. I loved loved loved the show. However they need to be ashamed of themselves on how much they charge for a bottle of water. Highway robbery.

The show is lighthearted and comedic. I would say the best scene in the whole show was Act II when Franz (Cody Lancaster) did his solo. However, the performance by the female lead, Sherri (Kate Rockwell), was extremely disappointing and almost unbearable for me. She cannot do rock it was quite obvious when she was dancing next to other cast... More

This was the BEST show I've ever seen - the actors are amazing and we got 2nd row seats for half price on the day of the show at TKTS in Times Square - awesome !! I'll go see it again
