A wedding toast turns into a one-man virtuoso performance of the greatest Jewish play of all time in The Dybbuk (for Hannah and Sam's Wedding). Multiple Drama Critics Circle Award-winner (and acclaimed multi-character actor) Ron Campbell makes his highly anticipated return to San Diego in this staged reading of the timeless, chilling story of love and exorcism about a young Jewish woman possessed by the wandering spirit of her predestined -- and deceased -- husband. Adapted from Jewish playwright S. Ansky's seminal work and directed by Todd Salovey, the performance features haunting music composed and performed by Yale Strom and members of Hot Pstromi.

This was an amazing show! I enjoyed everything - from the well choreographed dance routines to the song selection. There was a great mix of old favorites and tunes that I had not heard before.... The cast was terrific....and boy, can they belt out the tunes!
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_
Leiber and Stoller, as much as anyone, virtually invented rock ‘n’ roll, and now their songs provide the basis for an electrifying entertainment that illuminates a golden age of American culture. In an idealized ’50s setting, the classic themes of love won, lost and imagined blend with hilarious set-pieces and slice-of-life emotions.
Featuring nearly 40 of the greatest songs ever recorded, these classic tunes defined the golden age of rock with hits from Elvis, the Drifters, Dion, the Coasters, Ben E. King and many other pop legends. Smokey Joe’s Cafe isn’t just great pop music — it’s compelling musical theatre.
