Words and Music by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller
This song-and-dance celebration features nearly forty rock-and-roll hits from the Top 40 songwriting team of Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, including “Yakety Yak,” “Hound Dog,” “Jailhouse Rock,” “Love Potion #9,” “Charlie Brown,” “Stand By Me, “ “Kansas City” and more. What the songwriting team thought were merely rock-and-roll hits turned out to be rock-and-roll classics, and the best of them are featured in “Smokey Joe’s Cafe,” an all-music production that captures the post-war era of the 1950s. All shows are held in the indoor theater.
