Rock of Ages, The Musical

by Elle Brown

One celebratory Sunday in July, I was surprised with tickets to see Rock of Ages on Broadway. Funny enough, my company sells 80's rock band t-shirts for kids and this gift turned out to be very inspirational for me. The show was great! All the rock songs from the 80's that we grew up listening to were filling the Helen Hayes Theatre. One couldn't help but chair dance throughout the the entire show. Or, like the mildly annoying woman behind me, sing the wrong words to the coolest 80's tunes.

We arrived a little early to find a very long line of people with tickets waiting to go into the theatre. At bag check I was faced with the difficult task of forced disposal of the $6 birthday cupcake my husband bought for me on the walk over. I was saving it to indulge upon once my lunch from the famous Carnegie Deli was somewhat digested. It was chocolate. However, I was soon distracted once we found ourselves inside the theatre surrounded by photographs of the famous rock photographer, Mark Weiss.

We browsed the photography to marvel at all the bands we loved. We reminisced about which concerts tours we saw, how old we were, who we went with, how tickets were only $18.50 back then and how sometimes, we missed the last train home from the city and had to sit in NY Penn until 5am waiting for the first train out.

Motley Crue, Skid Row, Bon Jovi, Warrant and so many more photos of cool 80's rock bands donned the walls of the theatre. We marveled at how young they all looked, the big hair, the make up, where the time had gone and the clothes they, and we, wore back in the day, including spandex pants, lots of leather, fringe and fingerless gloves.

We made our way to the bar and paid $24, each, for a glass of wine. Then, we found our seats. The show was fun from the first act to the last 80's, rock inspired, encore. Finishing our NY romp at a fine Italian restaurant in Little Italy was the perfect ending to this work/play day in the most magnificent city in the world with my best buddy.

by Elle Brown The easiest way to dry your baby's clothes is in a clothes dryer. A dryer is quick and keeps baby's clothing from getting stiff which can happen when air-drying garments.
