Added DiffLines:

Added DiffLines:

* PairTheSpares: Franz and Regina; [[SuddenlySexuality Dennis and Lonnie]].

* ActingForTwo: Numerous instances in the play. Lonny and Dennis both double with men from the record company, Sherrie's father also plays Stacee Jaxx, Regina/Candy, and Justice/Sherrie's mother. The Stacee/Sherrie's father casting is particularly jarring, since they end up [[ParentalIncest having sex]].



* DyeingForYourArt: Though the original Franz was a brunette, many of the more recent brunette actors playing him have gone blonde.

* LongRunners: By the time it closes in January 2015, it will have run nearly 2,300 performances-- good for 29th place on the all-time list of Broadway's most-performed shows. It's also the newest show to crack the top 30, having opened in only 2009 (although ''Theatre/TheBookOfMormon'' is creeping up on it).

* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler: Dennis passes away and leaves the Bourbon Room to Lonnie, but the club stays open; Franz reconciles with his dad, opens his confectionery shop in Germany, and maintains a long-distance relationship with Regina, who becomes the mayor of West Hollywood; Stacee is charged with statutory rape and forced to flee to Uruguay, where he apparently keeps performing; and Sherrie and Drew get together and start a family in the suburbs, even though it means giving up their dreams of rock stardom.]] The show ends with Lonnie delivering the [[AnAesop Aesop]] that "on the Sunset Strip, even though the dreams you leave with might not be the dreams you came in with, but they can still rock."
