THEATER | "Rock of Ages" 

You have to wonder about how heavily our ideas about navigating love are influenced by pop culture. This week, Broadway smash hit "Rock of Ages" brings this concept to the stage in its most literal sense. This funny, feel-good love story is set in the Sunset Strip of 1987, where the story of a small-town girl and a big-city dreamer is told through the 80's hit songs by iconic rockers Journey, Styx, REO Speedwagon, Foreigner, Pat Benatar, Whitesnake, and many others. The show features 28 classic rock anthems, including "Don't Stop Believin'," "We Built This City," "The Final Countdown," "Wanted Dead or Alive," "Here I Go Again," "Harden My Heart," "Can't Fight this Feeling," "Renegade," and "I Want To Know What Love Is."

"Rock of Ages" will be performed at Auditorium Theatre (885 E. Main St.) for two nights only on Thursday, January 30, at 7:30 p.m., and Friday, January 31, at 8 p.m. Tickets range from $35 to $55, and are available by calling 800-745-3000 or through ticketmaster.com and the Theatre Box Office.
