My sister and I climbed the stairs to Terrace 2 Right (free tickets!). The nice usher offered us the Playbill and a theater-safe LED lighter. We found our seats among the familiar faces from the SMC Indy event. I imagine there were at least a dozen check-ins on FourSquare, but I wouldn't know for sure since I have been holding out on registering. I attempted to tweet a picture of my radical new lighter with no luck. Then the lights came down and the introduction called people who text during the show "douche-bags." For real! I knew this show was going to bad ass from there.
The two ladies sitting next to me dressed in their finest 80's garb and brought awesome energy. We sang along to the best arena-rock jams, pumped our arms in the air, LED lighters in hand and thoroughly rocked out. I don't think I knew the name to one song or if it was Poison or White Snake, but I knew every word to every song. Rock of Ages was by far the most fun I have had at the theater. At intermission, our whole row glowed with cell phones tweeting out the love for the show.
If you ever get the chance to see Rock of Ages, go!

He loves the sod. He was one with the sod. He started to hold small pieces of it between his paws like a blankey. It was the oddest thing I've seen him do. I mean, he really loves the sod.
