Description: Leiber and Stoller, as much as anyone, invented rock & 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, Smokey Joe’s Café isn’t just great pop music, it’s compelling musical theatre.
