• Complimentary RoA flashlight “lighters.” Upshot: a 1980s rock fest feel.

• In the aisles: Wait staff (appropriately attired) taking orders for drinks (alcoholic & otherwise) delivered to your seats. Upshot: Life is good.

• Singing along to those guilty-pleasure songs from 30 years ago. Upshot: You’re belting on Broadway.

• Costumes (by Gregory Gale) trigger nostalgia for legwarmers, Flashdance T’s, and acid-washed denim. Upshot: Kinky hankering for big shoulders and studded leather.

• Crowd-pleasing faves: Jazzercising German chocolatier wannabe Franz (Derek St. Pierre), and “stuck in the ’70s” bar owner Dennis (Adam Dannheisser). They creep up on you with the insidious sass of an Olivia Newton-John video. Upshot: Heavy-duty laughs.

• James Carpinello’s washed-up rock star Stacee Jaxx: a spot-on caricature who belts out power ballads like the pros from the past.

American Idol’s Constantine Maroulis as romantic lead Drew. Act fast: he’s moving back to the 21st century around mid-August.

• Mitchell Jarvis as Lonny sporting a collection of quasi-profane t-shirts. Upshot: serious double-takes from the guy next to you. -- Melanie Baker and Sarah Wormser
