Opinions on "Rock of Ages"

We are going to NYC for my husband's birthday and would like to go see Rock of Ages, we really enjoyed the movie (especially the songs). I was wondering if anyone else has seen it on Broadway and their opinions. thanks

This is one of many previous threads with one sentence reviews. Genereal consensus is if you like 80's music, you'll like the show.

It is very rock & roll with an atmosphere that is so laid back that they serve alcohol in the auditorium during the show up until just after intermission. Very loud. However, if you like that era's music, it should be a fun show for you to see. (I went to see it just to see it & was glad to check it off my list of shows seen but it didn't make it on my list of must see again shows but then I'm a classical music fan.)

It's a fun show. Be aware that the storyline between the movie and the stage musical varies quite a bit. Pretty funny dialogue, good 80's vintage music. Best part is the theatre it's held in is very small, as long as you're not seated at the very outside of a row, it'll be like being in someone's living room.

Agree with all of the above. Good music, funny, intimate theater.

One inside tip: Bathroom lines are killer though - be aware that during intermission, the line is ridiculous, even for the guys.

worth seeing once it is fun and they let you bring drinks back to your seats.

I like the stage show much better than the movie, although the replacement cast isn't as good as the original.

As long as you like the 80's, you're good.

Gee, could it be all the alcohol being served during the show?she asks a bit sarcastically.
