About This Show

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 ’50’s 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, smokey Joe’s Cafe isn’t just great pop music – it’s compelling musical theatre.
