This was a great play.....ALL of the cast was unique and special in their own ways..........their talents combined was just awesome. I'd go see this play with this cast again and again. I'm sure other performers could do a good job but these...continued

This show exceeded my expectations. The performers were excellent.
I have no idea how they went for 3 hours with high energy dance and song but I loved it. I grew up on motown and this was fabulous

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 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.
