The Hills Musical Company are proud to present the Jukebox musical review “Smokey Joe’s Cafe. The Songs of Leiber and Stoller”.
Leiber and Stoller, as much as anyone, virtually invented rock ‘n’ roll, and now their songs provide the basis for 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. Smokey Joe’s Cafe isn’t just great pop music – it’s compelling musical theatre. The longest running musical revue in Broadway history, Smokey Joe’s Cafe is a song and dance revue showcasing 39 pop standards, including Love Potion #9, On Broadway, I’m A Woman, Yakety Yak, and more rock and roll, rhythm and blues songs written by songwriters Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller. A fantastic ‘party’ to end The Hills Musical Company’s year featuring Adelaide’s best talent with a 7 piece band on stage. The show will be rehearsed for a much shorter and intense period (4 weeks) and will play for two weeks in November. This will be an SA Premiere.
