The place to enjoy live concerts and musicals in Phoenix is the Arizona Broadway Theatre and we were there one evening for the dinner show that included Rock of Ages themed on the musical world of the 1980s.
The theatre is completely equipped for serving quality cocktails and dinners with tables and chairs on every level. all with an open view to the stage.
We enjoyed a leisurely dinner with a Italian wedding soup followed by an entree of boneless chicken breast layered with cherry wood smoked bacon and mozzarella cheese.
The show that followed is set on Los Angeles Sunset Strip where a boy and girl arrive to become famous while falling in love.
We found this amusing since during the 1980s era of the show our office was located just a few blocks from the Strip.The result was we spent a good deal of time relaxing from hard work in some of the famous watering holes on the Strip.
The songs were from classic rock bands of the 1980s as the plot moves along at a leisurely pace.
This is the eleventh season for the Broadway Theatre and some of the shows include Shrek the Musical, West Side Story and Fiddler on the Roof. There is also a large concert series.
We thought our dinner excellent and noticed the courtesy and efficiency of the wait staff.
