It was a really fun experience. There were 8 young singers and they were all great. The whole event is all singing and dancing was very uplifting, you leave feeling great and ready to sing and dance yourself.

Great songs, highly energetic, talented cast. Your feet will be tapping, hands will be clapping and some of the smoky ballads will make you blush! Open Door's great new space is ideal for this show and a great addition to the Harrison Street Arts...continued

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.
