When wallflower Charlie Baker goes on a getaway to a fishing lodge in Georgia, all he wants is peace and quiet. He can't avoid the other guests, though, so a helpful friend "saves" him by claiming he is a foreigner who cannot speak or understand English. Comedy ensues as everyone unwittingly reveals their secrets and scandals to Charlie, thinking he can't understand. What started as a serene getaway becomes a hive of drama and intrigue in this exceedingly clever and outrageously funny farce. Learn More

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."<em> </em>--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." <em> --The New York Times</em>
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.
