Leiber and Stoller, as much as anyone, virtually invented rock 'n' roll, and now their songs provide the basis for an electrifying entertainment that illuminates a golden age of American culture. In an idealized '50's setting, the classic themes of love won, lost and imagined blend with hilarious set-pieces and slice-of-life emotions. Featuring nearly 40 of the greatest songs ever recorded, Smokey Joe's Cafe isn't just great pop music - it's compelling musical theatre.
The songs include "Neighborhood," "Young Blood," "Falling," "Ruby Baby," "Dance With Me," "Keep On Rollin'," "Searchin'," "Kansas City," "Trouble," "Love Me," "Don't," "Fools Fall In Love," "Poison Ivy," "Don Juan," "Shoppin' For Clothes," "I Keep Forgettin'," "On Broadway," "D.W. Washburn," "Saved, Baby," "That Is Rock & Roll," "Yakety Yak," "Charlie Brown," "Stay A While," "Pearl's A Singer," "Teach Me How To Shimmy," "You're The Boss," "Smokey Joe's Cafe," "Loving You," "Treat Me Nice," "Hound Dog," "Little Egypt," "I'm A Woman," "There Goes My Baby," "Love Potion #9," "Some Cats Know," "Jailhouse Rock," "Spanish Harlem," "I (Who Have Nothing)," "Stand By Me."
The orginal Broadway production opened in 1995 and ran for 2036 performances.
