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.
