BWW Review: ROCK OF AGES, New Wimbledon Theatre
by Aliya Al-Hassan - Feb 27, 2019

Taking us back to a world of hideous stonewashed denim, huge hair and even bigger rock anthems, Rock of Agesis on a new national tour. The jukebox musical has been doing the rounds since it first appeared in Hollywood in 2005, but this particular version shows that it has not aged well. The paper-thin plot focuses on sweet Southern gal Sherrie arriving in LA's bright lights. Here she meets the sweet and clean-cut Drew at the Bourbon Club. With the threatened demolition of the club as a background, Sheree is drawn into the murky LA underworld where she ends up working in a strip club. After various misunderstandings, the show concludes with a vaguely happy ending; so far, so predictable. (more...)

While the whole storyline is formulaic and predictable, what makes this show work is the mashup of 80s music and some powerhouse vocals. (more...)
