If you wax nostalgic for the 1980s, head to the Aronoff Center for a one-night-only presentation of the Tony-nominated Rock of Ages — back for its 10th-anniversary run with an all-new cast.
Jam out to a classic story of small-town gal meets city-slicker boy. As the name implies, the duo falls in loves in a hazy L.A. Rock club.
Featuring the tunes and croons of choice ’80s Hair Metal bands like Styx, Poison, Twisted Sister and Whitesnake, it may make you feel like you’re at prom... only this time sans heartbreak.
For real though: It’s a silly musical that doesn’t take itself too seriously with characters that have bigger personalities than their hair. It’s totally bitchin’.
7 p.m. Thursday. $30-$75. Aronoff Center’s Procter & Gamble Hall, 650 Walnut St., Downtown, cincinnatiarts.org.
