Quotes & Highlights

“Leiber and Stoller are the Rodgers and Hammerstein of rock’n’roll.”_ _—Cousin Brucie, WCBS-FM
“To the baby-boom generation, the songwriters Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller are as sacrosanct as George Gershwin is to their parents.” _ —The New York Times_

Description

Leiber and Stoller, as much as anyone, virtually invented rock ‘n’ roll, and their songs provide the basis for an electrifying evening of entertainment that illuminates a golden age of American culture. The classic themes of love won, love lost and love imagined are told with both great comedy and poignant slice-of-life emotions.
