Rock of Ages

botc_web_logo

Who knew it was possible to create an ’80s-themed show that’s even kitschier than the decade itself? Yet the Venetian’s Rock of Ages is up to the mock-tastic challenge with a crazy-fun riff on the mullet-and-hair-band goofiness of Reagan-era America. With hilarious snark to spare—and with way more verve than the limp movie version—Rock takes a tongue-in-cheek boy/rocker-wannabe-meets-girl/actress-wannabe story on the Sunset Strip and immerses it in a merry hard-rock set list from the likes of Poison, Styx and Journey. Quite simply: Rock rocks.

Tickets start at $71 for locals. RockOfAgesMusical.com.
