 Three things you need to know about the Denver-bound, national touring production of Rock of Ages:

  •  It’s not the movie. (That’s a good thing.)
  • It’s safe to bring your man. Or men.
  • It’s only performing in Denver for three days, so plan accordingly.

The New York Times recently reported that more men are steering clear of Broadway musicals than ever before. Only 32 percent of audience members last year were men, or 3.7 million; compared with 42 percent (or 4.2 million) in 1980.
