Broadway is one of my favorite places to visit in New York City.
I love to going to shows and have seen a bunch over the course of the last few years.
Every year for Christmas, my mom buys my sister and I play tickets and we have an annual "girls in the city" day ... and it has become our family tradition. This year, we received tickets to go see ROCK OF AGES ... which we saw today!
... and I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!
It was filled with ... a great storyline, talented performers, and awesome music! Seriously, tons of fun!!! I left with ROCK FEVER as I immediately downloaded some of the songs from the show to my i-pod when I returned home. I definitely recommend it if you are looking for a fun play to see.
For more background on Rock of Ages --
here is a clip and brief synopsis...
In 1987 on the Sunset Strip, a small town girl met a big city rocker and in LA’s most famous rock club, they fell in love to the greatest songs of the 80s. It’s ROCK OF AGES, an arena-rock love story told through the mind-blowing, face-melting hits of JOURNEY, NIGHT RANGER, STYX, REO SPEEDWAGON, PAT BENATAR, TWISTED SISTER, POISON, ASIA, WHITESNAKE and many more.
I'm going to leave you with a few songs that were my personal faves...
Whitesnake -- "HERE I GO AGAIN"
Journey -- "DON'T STOP BELIEVING"
Foreigner -- "I WANT TO KNOW WHAT LOVE IS"
