Parking was easy and close. Seats were great. Performance began right on time and was great. Good singers/dancers and non-stop rock and roll, done with a good sense of humor! Audience was on its feet and enjoying the upbeat evening. Go!

Great songs, wonderful actors. Upbeat and fun performance. It is all singing and dancing, does not have dialogue or plot outside of the music, but I enjoyed this.

Smokey Joe's Cafe was billed as primarily rock and roll music. The cast had Broadway Belters' voices which are not the best for rock and roll tunes; therefore, I was very disappointed with the experience.

The music was good, but the show didn't flow very well. It was entertaining, especially the dancing suit scene. I'm glad that our tickets were discounted through Goldstar.

Wonderful! Took visiting friends from Eastern PA who normally go to NY for theatre. They said it was better than anything they had ever seen in NY. We definitely have the best talent here in the Los Angeles area!
