The Broadway-bound production of the new musical comedy based on the songs of Elvis, All Shook Up, receives its world premiere. Directed by Christopher Ashley, with a book by Joe DiPietro, music direction and arrangements by Stephen Oremus, and choreographed by Ken Roberson.
Set in 1955, All Shook Up is not a biographical revue. This is a burnin' new musical comedy that tells the story of a small town girl who dreams of hitting the open road, and the guitar-playing stranger who brings romance, rebellion and rock 'n' roll into her life. The musical features such Elvis Presley classics as "Heartbreak Hotel," "Burning Love," "Love Me Tender," "Can't Help Falling in Love," "Jailhouse Rock," "Blue Suede Shoes," "A Little Less Conversation," "Hound Dog," "Don't Be Cruel," and of course, "All Shook Up."
