* LongRunners: Closed in January 2015 after running 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).

Added DiffLines:

* FinalLoveDuet: [[Music/{{Survivor}} "The Search is Over"]], between Drew and Sherry. Lonnie and Dennis also get one ([[Music/REOSpeedwagon "Can't Fight this Feeling"]]) somewhat earlier in Act II, but it's played mostly for laughs.


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.


Added DiffLines:

* TheSmurfettePrinciple: Pat Benatar is the only female artist covered.
