Our new London Theatre Direct official #TheatreReporters Sophie Skyring and Lorna Cracknell underwent their first mission last week to review hit show Rock Of Ages at the Shaftesbury Theatre. The two twenty-year-olds are lifelong theatre lovers and have stepped up to be the voice of the people, with their own unique take on what's hot and what's not in Theatreland.
Rock Of Ages has been wowing crowds in America for a few years and transferred to the Shaftesbury Theatre in the West End earlier this year. A high profile film version starring Tom Cruise, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Mary J Blige did brisk business at the UK box office recently which in turn saw the movie's soundtrack briefly keep both Cheryl Cole and Justin Bieber's lastest albums off the itunes topspot.
The current West End show features hilarious presenter Justin Lee Collins and X Factor winner Shayne Ward and is jam-packed with classic rock hits from the 1980s from the likes of Bon Jovi, Poison, Pat Benetar and Journey. But what did our girls think? Check out their video review!
You can follow the girls on Twitter, @SophieSkyring92 and @LornaCracknell and keep checking our Blog page for more reviews from the twosome! Feel free to share your thoughts too!
