What is this play rated? Featuring the songs of Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, and Jerry Lee Lewis, this musical contains rock ‘n’ roll, which has been known to bring about evocative and suggestive behaviors, to drive people crazy with thumping abandon becoming completely hypnotic. The music and story have a driving energy and has a life force all its own. We recommend this musical for ages 8+.
