Rock of Ages
A testosterone-fueled play like Orphans demands a steak afterward. That was my logic when I steered my companion and me to Angus’ Café and Bistro after Orphans’ Tuesday preview. Angus’, formerly known as Angus McIndoe, serves what is arguably the best bargain in the Theater District: a 38-oz. porterhouse T-bone for two, prix fixe at either $79 or $99.
If you’re looking for a musical that will appeal to non-Broadway fans too, look no further than Rock of Ages. While it still has the big song-and-dance numbers of other shows, the songs the actors are singing and dancing to are hits of the 1980’s that anyone with an FM radio will know. Known as “Broadway’s Best Party,” dancing in your seat is not only allowed, it’s strongly encouraged.
