Over the course of a 61-year partnership, Jerry Leiber (d. 2011) and Mike Stoller created enduring classics in a variety of genres including rhythm & blues, pop, country, jazz, cabaret, and-perhaps most notably-rock & roll. Elvis Presley and the Coasters are only two of the many acts whose careers skyrocketed because of Leiber and Stoller's creative partnership.

The two plays and one musical on offer are irresistible with all three being written by award-winning writers; Robert Scott, Aaron Sorkin, and Lin-Manuel Miranda respectively. Dolphin Theatre have put together a menu of simply delicious entertainment! The line up of performers alone is enough to get you securing your ticket and just skimming the cast list names such as Keith Marr, Bridie Dixon and Sam Iosefo catch my eye. I have reviewed them before and they are excellent.
