This theatrical tribute to Elvis Presley is told through the eyes of 17 women who met and/or influenced 'The King'. Some are enthralled---others appalled but all provide a touching view of 'The King'. The fast paced comedy provides insight into a side of Elvis seldom seen, and helps to portray the man and not the superstar.
The action travels from Tupelo Mississippi--where an 11 year-old Elvis wanted a BB Gun instead of a guitar--to the Steve Allen Show and from President Richard Nixon's office, to Andy Warhol's studio.
This fast paced series of 5 comedic plays and 3 monologues is a touching comedy with a heart that captures what fame, generosity and just being kind can do to others.
Author Luigi Jannuzzi contacted the BLT and provided an additional monologue which portrays a young woman, jilted by her boy friend, who meets Elvis by accident and is invited to join him onstage and to become a part of the performance. The touching monologue has been added to the play.
