We’ve all heard the saying, “age ain’t nothin’ but a number.” Well, that’s never been more true than in “Rockin’ with the Ages 3,” a fantastic new musical running until May 1 at the Victory Theatre in Burbank.
And if you’re unfamiliar with the previous two incarnations and are wondering why the play is called “Rockin’ with the Ages,” let me be the first to tell you that no one in this cast is under the age of 60. In fact, there are even a few cast members who are well into their 80s. Yet everyone in the cast still had the energy to sing and dance like they were the senior versions of Justin Bieber.
This may be the third installment in the “Rockin’ with the Ages” series, but rather than take a page from the previous two, which were primarily song-and-dance style revues, “Rockin' with the Ages 3” includes a storyline about a nightclub. Le Club Roc, as it’s called, has fallen on hard times, but we really don't know that until the end of the first act. In the meantime, we’re treated to an array of great songs that spans different genres, including rock ‘n’ roll, soul, and Mo-Town.
