Playbill for SMOKEY JOE'S CAFE


Season: 58 (2003 - 2004)

Run Date(s): Mar. 12, 2004 - Apr. 4, 2004


Words and Music by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller 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 slice-of-life emotions. Featuring nearly 40 of the greatest songs ever recorded ("Ruby Baby," "Kansas City," "On Broadway," "I'm A Woman," "Hound Dog," "Stand By Me," "There Is a Rose in Spanish Harlem"), SMOKEY JOE'S CAFE isn't just great pop music - it's compelling musical theatre.
