This show ROCKED!





I saw American Idol's Constantine Maroulis in Rock of Ages last night, and it was simply terrific. First of all, he's simply a charmer. He has great pipes and unexpectedly delicious comic timing -- all innocent wonderment inside a leather-clad rocker's body. The plot is fabulously, ridiculously silly. And the music! Everything from "Cum on Feel the Noize" to "Don't Stop Believing" to "We Built This City." I've had "Harden My Heart" running through my head all day. If you get a chance to see this show, do it!

It was also good to see my old boss/theater buddy, Barb, again.

  1. I watched AI during his season and his constant "eye-fucking" drove us all insane (and not in a good way!). He seems like an interesting fellow - I'm glad you had a good time!

    (I think he's made for that kind of thing vs. every day acting and stuff. Much like I see Adam Lambert doing it. There's an 'over-the-top-ness" to both of them that they can work well.)

  2. Sounds like fun! I could never picture Constantine as the Idol, but I could picture him in theater.

Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
