Owner description: Rock of Ages, the "insanely fun" (Time Out New York) worldwide smash hit musical featuring a raucous mix of 28 eyebrow-scorching tunes, is now rocking nightly at The Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino. Set in L.A.'s infamous Sunset Strip in 1987, Rock of Ages tells the story of Drew, a boy from South Detroit and Sherrie, a small-town girl, both in L.A. to chase their dreams of making it big and falling in love. Rock of Ages takes you back to the times of big bands with big egos playing big guitar solos and sporting even bigger hair! This hilarious, feel-good love story celebrates the great rock songs of the '80s including such sing-out-loud songs as "Every Rose Has Its Thorn," "I Wanna Know What Love Is", "Here I Go Again", "Don't Stop Believin'", and more. Parental Advisory Rock of Ages is all about having a good time but you should be aware that some of the costumes, dancing and language might not be appropriate for kids under the age of 14 (kids under the age of 14 must be accompanied by an adult). Remember, if you do bring them, they'll get to see you rockin' like you did back in the day! AGE LIMIT Under 14 Must Be Accompanied By An Adult Under 5 Will Not Be Admitted Into The Theatre

“A rock opera - not an 80s music show”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

We thought we were going to a show where the 80s music was the main theme and we expected some sort of theartre-style story linking the music numbers. In fact it was exactly the opposite. It was a rock opera theatre-style production with the music in the backgroud as a backdrop to the actual show. NOT what we expected or wanted to see at all. Not that it was a bad production by any sense - we found it disappointing simply because we expected the 80s music (which is what is extensively promoted about this show) to be the main part of the experience and it isn't.

“Best Play on The Strip”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

You've got to see this 80's themed play. The performers, the characters they portrayed & the vocal dynamics were all totally awesome! We sat just a few rows from the front & center Next to us were a Mom & daughter who had seen the play several times before. I, too, would go back in a heartbeat. We laughed & just totally loved it.

“Absolutely one of the best shows I've seen!”
Reviewed 30 June 2014 via mobile

As a 80's chick this music was what we listened to, partied to, danced to! Brought back so many memories I could almost relive and feel what I was doing when I heard the songs. I was only able to read about the LA bar scene in those days, with the mix of humor and spoofing the scene it was worth every minute!
