Rock Of Ages at the Orpheum theater Minneapolis Minnesota 2/8/19
Wow! Is the very first word that comes to mind. If you are a casual theater door or one that doesn’t miss a play, you certainly don’t want to miss this one. Opening night was absolutely fantastic. It delivered everything that I expected it would.
The crowd seemed to know every single song as they worked their way through a variety of classics by Twisted Sister, Bon Jovi, Damn Yankees to name a few. Yes this is a musical with a story about 80s rock ‘n roll but the thing I don’t want to get lost in all of this, is the cast itself. I was amazed by how every single person that sang seemed to have an incredible voice.
We are very fortunate in Minneapolis to have the Hennepin theater district. The amount of incredible venues to see plays and live concerts beats most other cities hands-down. The Orpheum is one of those classic venues that adds to the experience.
