This was a great show. I saw it on Broadway a few years ago MTW's production was just as good if not better! The ensemble numbers were outstanding and all of the soloists were incredible. I liked the show so much I went back to see it for a 2nd time

Description

Musical Theatre West is delighted to present the first U.S. regional production of the Joe DiPietro hit Broadway musical _All Shook Up _at the Carpenter Performing Arts Center in Long Beach.

_All Shook Up, _loosely based on Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, tells the all-new story of a square little town in the middle of a square state in the middle of a square decade where a lonely young girl dreams of hitting the open road. Into her life rides a guitar-playing roustabout who changes everything and kick-starts a hip-swivelin’, lip-curlin’ musical fantasy that will have you jumping out of your blue suede shoes.  All Shook Up contains 25 of Elvis Presley’s greatest hits, including “All Shook Up”, “Jailhouse Rock”, “Blue Suede Shoes” and “Love Me Tender”. Combining all-time favorite Elvis hits with a whole new story, _All Shook Up _is surefire fun for rock ‘n’ roll rebels of all ages!

Derek Keeling (NBC’s Grease: You’re the One That I Want_) and Bets Malone (_The Marvelous Wonderettes) will star as Chad and Natalie.  Rounding out the all star cast are Barry Pearl (Doody in the Paramount feature film Grease), Cynthia Ferrer (MTW’s Thoroughly Modern Millie), Tracy Lore (MTW’s The Full Monty), Gwen Stewart (original Broadway cast, Rent_), Sabrina Sloan (_American Idol) and John Massey (MTW’s The Full Monty, The Pirates of Penzance).  MTW’s Associate Artistic Director Steven Glaudini will direct, with choreography by Ovation award winning choreographer Lee Martino and musical direction by Michael Borth.
