    When it comes to hair — long beautiful hair or gleaming streaming hair or flaxen waxen hair — I am afraid that sweet nostalgia trip about flower children and free love has already become an also-ran on Broadway.

    What do Madonna, Prince, Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, U2, Bruce Springsteen, the Police and Dire Straits have in common? They're just a few of the artists who had enormous hits between 1980 and 1989, and whose tunes apparently lacked sufficient camp value to qualify for the jukebox musical Rock of Ages.

    If the 1980s were a bad-fashion blur you'd rather forget, "Rock of Ages" may not be for you. But if tortured mullets, unwaxed chests, studded leather, acid-wash denim and wailing guitars make you yearn for the Reagan years, this unapologetically silly hair-metal jukebox musical will probably have you gulping tequila shots and singing along. Every bit as brazen as the yardstick for the genre, "Mamma Mia!," in wedging hit songs into a purpose-built, featherweight plot, the show has an abiding affection for its inglorious era that goes some way toward selling its brash charms.
