“Rock of Ages” Musical Hits Cancun, and It’s Awesome

I don’t even LIKE rock music very much, yet I was still singing along to every. single. song.

Over the weekend I went to Dreams Playa Mujeres (a lovely, chic, beautiful resort north of Cancun) to see their show Rock of Ages. Yup, the Broadway musical one!

The love interests, awww!

Little-known fact: I am a little obsessed with musical theater and was very involved with theater in high school, so I gotta say I really miss good theater living here in Cancun. Sure, every hotel here has its evening shows, but let’s be 100% honest: most of them are done a little on the cheap and some even include *gasp* lip-syncing.

SO this new Rock of Ages show was a breath of fresh air for me. I can’t say enough good things: the production value was excellent, the singing was great by all performers, the dancers were so fun to watch, and the live rock band (who are Cancun locals!!!) played perfectly. The show has a love story, some of the world’s best rock songs, strippers if you’re into that, and plenty of silly laugh-out-loud comedy. It was just a fun night.

The rockers from Cancun!

This show is a great night out if you’re in Cancun on vacation, but it’s even better for locals like me who don’t get many opportunities for such incredible live entertainment at this level.
