Sing It Loud: “Rock of Ages” Rocks DPAC

"Rock of Ages" runs through Oct. 30th at the Durham Performing Arts Center

If Chris D’Arienzo hadn’t concocted the 2008 Off-Broadway and 2009 Broadway hit “Rock of Ages,” now wowing Durham Performing Arts Center patrons of a certain age, someone else would have created a jukebox musical showcasing the music of the 1980s. There’s just so much drama amidst the Wall of Noise.
