‘Rocktopia’ review: rock-classical concert hits Broadway BROADWAY REVIEWS

Theater: Broadway Theatre / 1681 Broadway, New York, NY, 10019

Synopsis: 

Heads bob. Arms sway. Hands clap. And, frequently, eyes roll — at least mine did.

So it goes during “Rocktopia,” a two-hour concert at the Broadway Theatre through April 29 that blurs the lines between famous rock hits and classical ones. Think, Puccini meets Pink Floyd.

If the notion of Mozart’s exuberant “Eine Kleine Nachtmusik” married to Styx’s guitar-grinding “Come Sail Away” or a lush Handel aria bleeding into Elton John’s plaintive “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down On Me” sounds like music to your ears, this may be the mash-up for you.

Otherwise, not so much.
