Ready to rock? Gazette’s Meinert talks ‘Rock of Ages,’ other Weidner faves

Tag icon

The ’80s Broadway hit “Rock of Ages” is an early favorite among Weidner Center subscribers, the Press-Gazette’s Kendra Meinert reported in today’s (Thursday, July 25) column, and landing the show in the first place is “a bit of a coup.” Meinert caught “Rock” in Minneapolis a couple of years ago, and reports that it’s “about as much fun as you can have reliving the era without big hair, a mullet or a Bic lighter.” From throwback fashions to singing along — loudly — the “Rock of Ages” experience pays homage to the music of the ’80s in a big way, Meinert says. It’s just one component of a season that “has been smartly designed for variety — truly something for everyone, if you will,” the column says. The Weidner will “Rock” Feb. 23 — so there’s plenty of time for children of the ’80s to fish out the legwarmers and brush up on those Styx lyrics. Full column.
