Rock of Ages

Musical. Another nostalgic book musical using the hair-rock of the 80’s to tell the story of “just a small town girl…livin’ in a lonely world”.  Great humor, sing-along songs, shoulder pads, and long hair.  The narrator invented the character that became the Keystone beer guy.  Yup, the ’80s is now a “period piece”.
