The Plot

The Plot
Rock of Ages is a musical with a book by Chris D’Arienzo and a score featuring 30 songs from the 1980s, principally by Journey, Def Leppard, Styx, REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar, Foreigner, Bon Jovi and Whitesnake. It is built around the themes of love, hope and dreams. The musical tells the story of Drew Boley and Sherrie Christian, two young people from different backgrounds who meet on Sunset Strip while pursuing their Hollywood dreams. Their rock ‘n’ roll romance is told through the heart-pounding hits of the great hair bands of the 1980s.

The Characters

We’re not Gonna Take It is a musical with a variety of interesting and unique characters. The musical is based on the iconic ’80s film, Rock of Ages. Here are some of the characters you’ll meet in the musical:

Dennis Dupree: Dennis is the owner of the legendary Hollywood rock club, The Bourbon Room. He’s a bit of a frustrated rocker himself and still dreams of making it big.

Lonny Barnett: Lonny is Dennis’s right-hand man at The Bourbon Room. He’s a bit of a ladies’ man and loves to party.

Sherrie Christian: Sherrie is a small-town girl who comes to Hollywood to make it as an actress. She ends up working at The Bourbon Room as a waitress.

Chris Custer: Chris is Sherrie’s love interest. He’s an aspiring rocker who works at The Bourbon Room as a barback.

Stacee Jaxx: Stacee Jaxx is a world-famous rock star who is currently in town for his latest tour. He’s known for being wild and unpredictable both on and off stage.

The Music

Rock of Ages is a broadway musical with music by various classic rock bands including Journey, Bon Jovi, Poison, and more.

The Set

The set for Rock of Ages is deceptively simple. A giant marquee sign (for fictional “Venus Club”), a few scaffolds, some stairs, and that’s pretty much it. But while the set is minimal, the stagecraft is not. The set is constantly in motion throughout the show, with pieces moving up, down, and all around to accommodate the various scenes. And when those pieces are not moving, they’re often covered in neon lights or confetti. In short, the set for Rock of Ages is a feast for the eyes, and it perfectly sets the tone for this high-energy musical.

The Costumes

TheRock of Ages musical features many flashy and outrageous costumes. The hair metal bands of the 1980’s were known for their over-the-top style, and the costumes in the musical reflect this. The men wear tight jeans, leather jackets, and torn t-shirts. The women wear short skirts, 5 inch heels, and fishnet stockings. There are also brightly colored spandex leggings and sequined dresses. All of the costumes are meant to show off the bodies of the actors and actresses.

The choreography

On the whole, the choreography was excellent. There were a few rough patches, but overall it was very well done. The dancing was very energetic and enthusiastic, and the cast did a great job of bringing the show to life.

The Lighting

The creative team worked tirelessly to design a state of the art lighting system that would complement the massive set and costumes while still giving the actors the ability to create honest and intimate moments. The result is a lighting design that is both opulent and effective.

The Sound

The original songs for the musical were written by some of the biggest names in rock, including Poison’s Bret Michaels, Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott, Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider, and Journey’s Steve Perry. The result is a high-energy, fist-pumping sound that will have you on your feet all night long.

The Overall Experience

The ROCK of AGES musical was an experience like no other that I have had the pleasure of attending. From the very first note, I was drawn in and transported to a different time and place. The story follows the journey of a small-town girl who moves to Hollywood in search of fame and fortune. Along the way, she meets a down-on-his-luck rock star who helps her find her place in the world. The music is classic rock ‘n’ roll, and the energy of the show is contagious. I would highly recommend this musical to anyone who loves music, laughter, and a good time.
