Since its inception, “Power Balladz” has captivated audiences with its unique blend of nostalgia, humor, and raw musical talent. The show’s original cast members and long running band members have been the heart and soul of the production, igniting the stage with their powerhouse performances and infectious energy.

“There are people of a certain age who hear the words “Sister” and “Christian” in the same breath and do not think of nuns. These are hard-bitten hard rock fans, those who instantly recognize the mid-1980’s Night Ranger song title. They’re also the folks targeted by a strange little rock show near Broadway: “Power Balladz” an off-Broadway cabaret besotted by soaring guitars that comes to New York by way of Minneapolis from what seems like a rip in time. “ –Associated Press
