"Rock of Ages"

April 13-17

What I’ll be hoping for when I see “Rock of Ages” for the first time isn’t a musical for the ages. And not a resonant dramatic experience.

What I’m hoping to find in this collection of hair-band hits strung together with the barest semblance of plot and character is some hint of the joy of being 15 and clueless. And while I’m in no hurry to ever again hear “We Built This City,” at least I can do it in the company of former American Idler Constantine Maroulis, who re-creates the part he launched on Broadway. Details here.
