What am I still doing in Cancun?

The adventures of an American single mommy working and playing in paradise.

Cancun musical theater

Rock of Ages Cancun at Dreams Playa Mujeres


Most resorts in the Cancun area feature nightly shows, and they are generally entertaining, but Dreams Playa Mujeres has taken things to a whole other level with Rock of Ages, a local version of the Broadway musical that features rock hits from the 80’s.

And well, I am a child of the 80’s! I absolutely loved it and I sang my heart out the entire time.

The almost entirely Mexican cast performs the show completely in English. I was very impressed with the singing. The acting, sets and lighting were excellent as well. With over 100 shows under their belt, the musical has been featured since October 2017, and they are hoping for another extension.

Before the show we got to hear a little from the cast, and we took some pictures in the lobby.

I tried to make a rock face here but I think I look more like the devil.

Then it was time for the show! I laughed, I sang, and I almost cried at the end. (I was in shows in high school and musical theater always makes me very emotional.)

Here you can actually see that I sang my heart out because somehow I ended up in this video…

The show is really very entertaining, especially if you like 80’s rock. It’s a great evening activity for those who want to do something other than go to a nightclub or bar.
