For $30, today's side deal gets you a general-admission ticket to Power Balladz, an interactive theater show and rock concert at Midtown Theater in Times Square (a $75.98 value). Showtimes are currently Thursdays at 9 p.m., Fridays at 7 p.m. and 10 p.m., and Saturdays at 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. and on the same days after September 9, though Thursdays will move to 8 p.m. and the first Saturday show to 7 p.m. This deal is only valid for shows through October 18.
Conjuring the foot-stomping, big-chorus anthems of arena rock from the '70s through the '90s, the off-Broadway Power Balladz show features a full slate of big-haired classics performed by talented singers and a guitar-shredding band. Mixing elements of theatrical comedy and electric musical performances, Power Balladz has melted the faces of audiences and critics alike with fog machines, a video-projection screen, and leather-and-spandex attire. Sing along to hits from bands like Guns N' Roses, Queen, the lighter-waving Styx, and more. Arrive a half-hour before showtime for interactive hair-metal trivia, and show off your Axl-inspired falsetto with a full-band live karaoke session at the end of the night. Leave the kids at home watching a 12-part Yanni documentary while unleashing your inner Slash with today's side deal to Power Balladz.

- From the opening notes of "Sweet Child O' Mine" resounding from the depths of the audience, to "Sister Christian" being accompanied by Scott's air guitar, to an impressive strobe light show set to "Alone", the best rock hits are all covered with an extra something special. No one should miss the guys' rendition of Styx's "Come Sail Away," which is enhanced in ways you would have to see to believe. – Iris Wiener, TheaterMania.com
