Rock Of Ages transports audiences back to the Sunset Strip, circa 1987, where a small town girl meets a big city rocker in L.A.'s most famous rock club. There, they fall in love to the greatest songs of the 80s in an awesomely outrageous story about dreaming big, playing loud, and partying on!

Los Angeles Times - Recommended

"...“Rock of Ages” should be particularly buzz-worthy in its two-week Pantages run (followed by eight performances in Costa Mesa) thanks to breaking news that producers of a big-budget movie adaptation are circling around names like Tom Cruise, Mary J. Blige and Anne Hathaway. There is no doubt a film adaptation will see a million faces and rock them all, in the words of the sage. So let’s just hope a screenwriter is already hard at work ditching dialogue like “He’s a star, and stars are undeniable, like herpes.” Because herpes plus time is still not quite comedy."

"...Director Kristin Hanggi pulls out all stops to keep the energy at a fever pitch, highlighted by choreographer Kelly Devine's hyperkinetic MTV-style dance numbers, while maintaining an atmosphere of goofy fun. Hanggi elicits spirited comic performances. Reprising his Broadway role, Constantine Maroulis radiates charm and good humor in the lead romantic role of Drew, a wannabe rock star who falls for Sherrie (the superb Rebecca Faulkenberry), the small-town girl who comes to Tinseltown seeking her big acting break. Their rocky romance is played out against the backdrop of the grungy rock club where they work. Not much else happens beyond the machinations of two villains to take over the club—amusingly played by Bret Tuomi, as the father, and Travis Walker, as his flamboyant son who doth protest too much, "I'm German, not gay!" Patrick Lewallen evokes plenty of laughs as a zany narrator, and Teresa Stanley sizzles as a red-hot-momma belter."

"...It’s no accident that Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’” came from an album entitled Escape, because that is what I wanted to do from The Pantages as of the first scene in Rock of Ages. This nitwit of a musical uses a preposterous book to showcase music of the longhair bands of the 1980s."

The Hollywood Reporter - Recommended

"...Rock, directed by Kristin Hanggi with book by Chris D’Arienzo, has the good sense not to take itself seriously except when it comes to the music. The story, characters and style of the piece run the gamut from the silly to the cartoonish, and even the nonstop pelvic choreography, after a while, is about as erotic as cracked crab."

Jay Reiner - Not Recommended

"...As for the story, it was just an excuse to feature the music; they even say so in the show. Ostensibly it tells the story of the Sunset Strip during this period but it is hardly accurate. Also problematic was the sound system that seemed alright where I was in the rear orchestra, but I was told that it was way too loud in the balcony."
