Rock of Ages

The first time I heard of Rock Ages was when I watched the movie last year. The movie got bad reviews  from the critics but I thought it was good. Tom Cruise was a rock god in the movie. Julianne Hough and Diego Boneta as Drew and Sherrie made a wonderful pair. But most of all, I really loved the soundtrack. I'm more of a pop music lover but I truly enjoyed the rock songs featured on Rock of Ages.

I didn't know it was originally a Broadway musical until I heard about the one by Atlantis Productions where Mig Ayesa plays the role of Stacee Jaxx. While I didn't get to catch the first run of Rock of Ages here in Manila, I finally got to see its repeat run and it's all thanks to Velvet Channel's 2 tickets giveaway contest on Facebook of which I was one of the four lucky winners. Thank you Velvet! (",)

The play's story was a bit different from the movie version but I enjoyed watching both. I thought Jett Pangan and Aiza Seguerra stole the show. I loved their performances the most. I liked Nyoy Volante as Drew as well. But of course I loved Diego and Julianne's pairing more than Nyoy and Vina. They have more chemistry together. And maybe I'm a little bit bias too because I think Diego is a hottie and I'm a fan of Julianne!



Don't they just look so adorable together? 

Anyhoo, let me share with you my most favorite songs from Rock of Ages:

 Every Rose has its Thorn

I've Been Waiting for a Girl like You  (Super loved this scene in the movie) 


Harden my Heart/Shadow of the Night 



Anyhow, Anton Diaz of Our Awesome Planet gives you  reasons to watch Rock of Ages, the Broadway Musical and even gives a tip on how to fully enjoy Rock of Ages. If you want to watch Rock of Ages, The Repeat Run, catch it from July 12 to July 28, 2013 at RCBC Plaza, Makati at the Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium.
