Last night opened up the ROCK OF AGES run at the Winspear with a wild and crazy evening filled with debauchery, dirty dancing, and a damn chill fella named Dennis Dupree!!!  It was an amazing time!  But you can experience it with even more awesome debauchery and wildness because REO SPEEDWAGON is coming!!!

‘Impossible to Resist’ really sums up the quality in this amazing production.  The US TOUR version has an all new cast from the Broadway version (most of the Tour group were part of the Toronto cast though).  But lets get to the cool news about Sunday’s Matinee Show.
