Leiber and Stoller 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 '50's setting, the classic themes of love won, lost and imagined blend with slice-of-life emotions. Featuring nearly 40 of the greatest songs ever recorded, SMOKEY JOE'S CAFE isn't just great pop music - it's compelling musical theatre. Featuring such hits as: “Stand By Me”, “Yakety Yak”, “On Broadway”, “Jailhouse Rock”, and “Fools Fall in Love”.
Roles are available for 5 men and 4 women. Please prepare at least 16 bars of a song, an accompanist will be provided.
