Presented by PNC Broadway Across America, Rock Of Ages rallies the thunderous voices of its talented cast to tell an arena-rock love story scored to the most recognizable hits of the ’80s. American Idol finalist Constantine Maroulis stars as love-struck singer Drew, who transports theater-goers back to the most hair-conscious decade of the 20th century, where love blossomed to the vibrato of Journey, and cities rose and fell around the lyricism of Jon Bon Jovi. Housed in the Benedum Center, Rock of Ages playfully parodies Sunset Strip rock lore while enthusing audience members with exuberant dance numbers, acid-washed denim, and an acute absence of pocket protectors. Adults will be instantly transported back in time to senior proms and Reaganomics, but children younger than 14 may not understand the historical significance of men’s jewel-encrusted spandex pants, so parental caution should be exercised for younger viewers.
