Rock of Ages from nicolab, 10/10/11
Rock of ages, what a brilliant show. I bought tickets on a chance basis, I had not read up upon the show or the book, and to my delight it was fantastic.
Shayne Ward does not only have a voice made for the theatre, but his comedy timing is spot on. Some of the jokes are a little corny, and not necessarily suited to the under 15s. However he really owned the role and his pairing with (the slimmer!) Justin Lee Collins is great as two youngsters in search for stardom in LA with of course a love interest along the way. If you liked “We Will Rock You” then you will definitely enjoy this show. It has the sing along / dancing in the isle factor! If you grew up in the 80s it is a must see, for the stars big hair & make up and of course with its rock anthems.
