Rock of Ages Review

The unlikely Broadway hit, a salute to '80s-era hair metal and power ballads, actually played on the Strip very briefly in 2006 before it went on to the Great White(snake) Way. Now it's back where its producers always wanted it to be, trying to ignore the lackluster response to the movie version starring Tom Cruise as an over-the-top rocker. The spoofy stage version alternates high-school humor with fist-pumping '80s hits such as "Sister Christian" and "Don't Stop Believin'," telling a story as old as rock 'n' roll itself: The kids try to save their beloved club from greedy developers.

Million Dollar Quartet. A retro-rock energy crackles through this Broadway hit inspired by a real moment in history—when Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, and Jerry Lee Lewis convened for a jam session at Sun Records studio in Memphis. The Las Vegas version is shorter and tighter than the already intermission-free Broadway version, and the cozy vintage showroom at Harrah's Las Vegas is a perfect fit for a different kind of "legends in concert." Harrah's Las Vegas, 3475 Las Vegas Blvd. S, Center Strip, 89109. 800/745–3000. www.harrahslasvegas.com. $69–$94. Thurs.–Tues. 7 pm and Sat. and Thurs. 9:30 pm.
