She was just a small-town girl living in a lonely world ... until she landed on the Sunset Strip in 1987 and met a wannabe rocker from Detroit. In the Tony-nominated musical "Rock of Ages", these two characters fall in love while pursuing their dreams and getting caught up in a fight to save the Strip from big developers. Across a raucous mix of eyebrow-scorching tunes from Journey, Night Ranger, Styx, REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar and so many more, they'll learn that on the Strip, the dreams you have when you arrive are not always the dreams you have when you leave -- but the Strip will always rock. Relive the '80s with classic hits like "Every Rose Has Its Thorn," "I Wanna Know What Love Is," "Here I Go Again" and, of course, "Don't Stop Believing," when "Rock of Ages" rattles the walls of Drury Lane Theatre in Oakbrook Terrace.
Rock of Ages is a full-out, blast-off, hold-onto-your-hairspray celebration of the great rock music of the 80s, and you might be wondering – or, admit it, hoping – your kids will love it as much as you will. Well, we think they will, but you should know that some of the costumes, dancing and language might not be appropriate for kids under the age of 13. We think teenagers will dig it, because it’s totally awesome, sort of like a music video brought to life, complete with hot dancers and blazing guitar licks. You know the maturity of your children, so we suggest you use your best judgment about whether or not the show is appropriate for them. Remember, if you do bring them, they’ll get to see you rockin’ like you did back in the day. Just so you know.
