The music and vocal by "The King" were great. I especially enjoyed the humor and story line.

2002 Best Show —O.C. Register

Description

Written and directed by Brian Newell. 

The King begins with Elvis being unfrozen from a cryogenic freeze he secretly under went in 1977. As the story unfolds you join him on an Elvis adventure in the Twenty First Century where he battles the elements of commercialism, corporate lawsuits, science and technology.

Befriended by a family in a small Mississippi town, a troubled Elvis, scared by his old lifestyle, is determined to prove who he is through his musical talent. Will the world believe him, will he find peace at last– well, you know he is the King.

The King has performed to sold-out audiences in Fullerton, Orange, Brea and Buena Park. The show’s overwhelming mass appeal to all ages is the very reason it continues to be requested since it’s original run in June 2002. This current staging has some re-writes as well as new performers in many of the leading roles. The production continues to use a unique combination of rear screen projected sets and video sequences and a live band to perform over 20 of Elvis’ biggest hits.
