Rock Of Ages Reviews
Rona Lamont from Houston, Texas
ROCK OF AGES ROCKED!!
The story was great, the music and acting was great and the clothing and big hair was a blast from the past indeed!! Really enjoyed this show as did all the audience who sang along, clapped and cheered the good guys, laughed and booed at the bad guys and genuinely had a great time. The Smart Financial Center is a perfect venue for a show like this and all seats have a great view. Not really a show for young children but a must see for everyone else who likes the music or wants to know about or remember fondly that era.

NOTHING COMPARES TO NYC HELLEN HAYES PREFORMANCE AND VENUE
There are some moments at the belk venue , :) but the stage and set are drastically different from the original show, and the only two characters worth mentioning are the German actors and perhaps Virginia. The rest of the cast is outright high school musical quality and grade. Sorry but that’s how I feel. No energy, no comedic timing , no chemistry amongst the cast, sound quality is also lack luster, it’s just a cheap water down version of one of the best musicals around. GO SEE IT IN NYC . ITS WAY BETTER THAN THIS MONEY GRAB.. i spent a great deal of money and the place was empty in my opinion for a 8pm Saturday show. No worth it. Go to nyc, it’s a religious experience there. In Charlotte at the belk, it’s just not nearly the same as far as talent and presentation. I’m feeling very sad.

It was outstanding, enjoyed it. Young man that did the lead was fantastic. The music brought back memories for me. Can’t wait to recommend it to my friends..

WORSE THAN I EXPECTED.
Rock of Ages made me laugh out loud several times - I’ll start there. However jokes like “I have a really big penis” reach down to the lowest level of humor. The plot is so cliche that I found it unbearable to watch. I get that the show doesn’t take itself seriously but it’s embarrassingly bad to watch how forced along every aspect of this show is, including the songs. This show is unique in a lot of ways. So is Bevis and Butthead. I don’t wish to spend time and money watching either.

ROCK SOLID PERFORMANCE
OMG! Laughed so hard I had tears a couple of times. The voices were great. The actors were wonderful. I loved the way that even the audience got into it. Perfect ending to my long week. I have told multiple friends about it today. Great job Seattle’s 5th Avenue.

SEATTLE REALLY... TOOK THE 80S ROCK BAND OUT OF IT
They figured out a way to apply the liberal #metoo movement to rock of ages, and it watered down the show quite a lot, unfortunately. Having seen it done before, I can say it feels like it really misses the 80s period piece because of it. The singing wasnt as good as other productions of this play, either. This show needs world class singers with experience belting out rock ballads, not indie emo band singers.

TOOK ME BACK TO MY "BIG HAIR" DAYS IN THE 80'S
FUN! FUN! FUN! Loved the sets, the characters, the clothing and the VOICES! Totally Rocked it!!! The lighting was the only issue; the intensity could be backed off a bit as depending on where you sit, the spots hits you strongly in the eyes.
