Show was very good. Theater is small enough that all seats have a good view.

Smokey Joe's Cafe was an outstanding musical revue. We really enjoyed the whole show. Excellent songs sung flawlessly by a terrific cast. The band was also excellent. We enjoyed the set up at the theatre, not a bad seat in the house and a full bar...continued

Smokey Joe's Cafe is musical review of around 40 songs from the partnership of Stoller and Lieber in the late 50's and 60's. Even though there is not really much of a plot, it doesn't matter. The music and dance from start to finish is fantastic....continued

The show was delightful! We enjoyed every minute. The cast was great! There was not one weak voice or dancer in the group. We would highly recommend this show to anyone who loves musical theater!!

There were two rows on chairs on each level and we had 6 ft. people sitting in front. We could not see at all. The performers were OK. Some sang off key and others were terrific.

This was a really fun show! I brought my mom (63 years old), and she loved it. The only thing that made it less than amazing was the lack of story line - it had even less than Million Dollar Quartet. However, the voices were fantastic. I'd have...continued

Very entertaining. Well worth attending and highly talented & passionate actors who both sing and dance! Even more challenging for them because they are immersed at all times in or within 4 feet of the audience.

My only criticism is: this...continued

Went on a Sunday afternoon. Show was great from the start, had our toes tapping and smiles plastered on our faces for the entire time. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole show. Was lucky enough to sit in the second row, in the small venue, so that...continued

With a city full of talent I am wondering where and how this was cast. There was one standout female voice and the male dancers were great- but this is a singing show! The band was excellent - would have liked to have heard more solos from them.
