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..

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.

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.

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.

LOVED IT!!! ROCK OF AGES IN CHICAGO!
Really enjoyed a blast from the past! For $20 I sat in the sixth row and laughed for three hours. Cast was engaging and very energic! My husband even liked it!

The band was really good and the songs are great. The singing was ok. I am familiar with the storyline, and was a disappointed in the added sexual terminology, etc. Also disappointed in the Orpheum's allowance of late attendees to enter after the performance began. We didn't pay to look at the back of someone's head while they looked for their seat. Having said all that, I would still go see it again because of the music.

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.
