Rock of Ages the musical
120 + min | Rated PG 13 | Directed By Sara Tweedy
A black comedy about white trash! The author of Daddy’s Dyin’ (Who’s Got the Will?) brings you a comedy that was nominated for over 30 awards during its long run in Los Angeles. When Peggy, a good Christian woman, hits her head on the sink and bleeds to death after tripping over her lover’s wooden legs in a motel room, chaos erupts in Winters, Texas.
The play covers the chaotic two days following the death of Peggy Ingram, a respectable Christian grandmother who died from a fall in a seedy motel room during a rendezvous with legless Vietnam War vet G.W.(Gary Gilmore) the husband of one of her best friends, Noleta (Ryan Darby).
This event lets out the closeted skeletons as Shores’ unique menagerie of family and friends wallows in an often riotous assortment of feuds, resentments, remorses and reconciliations.
As a prelude to each scene, Peggy’s New York actor grandson Ty (Cameron Gonzales) offers a series of soft-spoken soliloquies about his repressed youth and the slow emotional journey he has traveled to finally be able to return home to Texas and declare openly that he is gay. Cameron Gonzales low-keyed approach to Ty is an effective contrast to the action that follows.
Shores’ characters are plots unto themselves and the playwright, who also helmed the piece, has gathered a seasoned core of actors from his former plays to bring these Texans to life.
