Smokey Joe’s Café is a compelling rock ’n’ roll musical revue encompassing the songs of Leiber and Stoller, the inventors of this music genre. Their timeless songs provide the basis for this electrifying entertainment that had critics raving and audiences stampeding the box office during its record-breaking Broadway run. The show features nearly 40 of the greatest songs ever recorded including: On Broadway, Hound Dog, Jailhouse Rock, Stand By Me, Spanish Harlem, Love Potion #9, Young Blood, Yakety Yak, and I’m A Woman.
Each song in Smokey Joe’s Café is a trip down the corridors of American culture. The songs are supported by many of the popular dances associated with each time period, including the Jerk, Frug, Hully-Gully, Pony, Swim, Stroll, Twist, Wipeout and Hullabaloo. Smokey Joe’s Café, an extraordinary musical play that ran for more than 2,000 performances on Broadway, was the winner of the Grammy Award for Best Musical and was nominated for seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Director, and Best Choreography.
