BFFs: “If you’re a fan of the movie, or a fan of this era of hair bands, or just want a trip down memory lane, Rock of Ages is well worth it. You’ll leave tapping your foot, banging your head and grinning from ear to ear.”

Every first Monday of the month, Apartment613 will publish the coolest #ottarts #ottjobs we hear about.
Based on the book by author Roald Dahl, Matilda the Musical tells the story of a special and talented girl stuck in a world where she is unnoticed and unappreciated.
