STANFORD BROADWAY ACROSS AMERICA – FT. LAUDERDALE

PRESENTED BY FLORIDA THEATRICAL ASSOCIATION

FT. LAUDERDALE --- Combining all-time favorite Elvis Presley songs with a surefire rock'n'roll story, ALL SHOOK UP, the musical that hit Broadway last season, will ride into the Broward Center for the Performing Arts November 22 – December 2 as part of the 2006-2007 Stanford Broadway Across America – Ft. Lauderdale season presented by Florida Theatrical Association.

Headed by new-comer Joe Mandragona along with Jenny Fellner, fresh from Broadway's Mamma Mia and TV, stage and screen favorite Susan Anton, ALL SHOOK UP tells the romantic tale of how a young girl's dream comes true when a guitarplayin' roustabout rides into a square state and turns the town upside down with his hip-swivelin', lip-curlin'and sexy song singin'. The clever book is by Joe DiPietro ( I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change), with direction by Tony Award-nominee Christopher Ashley ( The Rocky Horror Show), and features 24 Presley classic hits songs including "Heartbreak Hotel", "Burning Love", "Jailhouse Rock", "Blue Suede Shoes," "It's Now or Never," and "Don't Be Cruel." Sergio Trujillo, who is currently represented on Broadway with the hit musical "Jersey Boys," choreographs this well tuned hot-rod musical and guarantees to have your entire family jumpin' out of their blue suede shoes!
