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. 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 (including Jailhouse Rock, Love Potion Number 9, and Stand By Me), SMOKEY JOE’S CAFÉ isn’t just great pop music – it is compelling musical theatre.
