Description

This high-energy musical revue takes audiences on an exciting journey through the enduring classics of rhythm and blues, pop, jazz, cabaret and, perhaps most notably, rock and roll. In an idealized 1950s setting, the classic themes of love won, lost and imagined blend with hilarious set-pieces and slice-of-life emotions. With nearly 40 of the greatest songs ever recorded, such as “On Broadway,” “Jailhouse Rock,” “Hound Dog,”  “Fools Fall in Love” and “Stand by Me,” Smokey Joe’s Cafe is electrifying and compelling musical theatre featuring the songs of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller.
