“Smokey Joe’s Cafe”
Directed by David Swan
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.
