Smokey Joe's Cafe was a great musical experience! All of the performers were excellent and their voices were strong. Who knew that Leiber and Stoller had written so many wonderful songs. The small disappointment that I felt was that there was...continued

The PPH is a great venue and the tickets offered through Goldstar can't be beat. Why anyone would pay full price is beyond me!!

I ordered my ticket from Goldstar on Wednesday for the following night's performance. My seat was in Row H, about a third of the way toward the center. The show was fabulous--great music, great singing. I've seen the show before, including on...continued

I would recommend Smokey Joe's Cafe. The singing, dancing, staging & choreography are a delight. It's a light hearted romp though memory land for those of us who remember the Leiber & Stoller songs of the '50's & 60's. I would never have...continued

We had great seats-in the 2nd row and were able to see the dancers very well. The sound system was great, the dancing was incredible and overall, it was fantastic.

Wow! What wonderful talent! I highly recommend this to anyone who loves taking a trip down memory lane. You'll be leaving either humming or singing one or more of the tunes performed. Great energy!

Fun music, a stroll down an early rock 'n roll memory lane. No story line, just the songs with appropriate dancing. A nice, easy evening- nothing to fret about & you leave with a smile. And those voices- marvelous, especially the women.

Good show, good price, good seats, good time! Am used to sitting closer to the stage at the Playhouse, or I would have rated it higher.

Seats were outstanding. Theatre is a gem. Talent in the show was great. Who directed this? It was a mess. Somehow the director believed that constant movement on the stage was necessary. It's not for this type of caberet format. It was more...continued

The show had a lot of energy, and the audience responded to that and gave back. The singing was great and of course the "shimmy" girl was a big hit.

We loved it and had a great time singing along with so many memorable oldies. My favorite was the performance of Love Potion #9, including the choreography and facial expressions of the cast, soo funny!! I recommend this show!
