REVIEW: Join the rock’n’roll dance party as some of the most popular hits from the 50s and 60s come alive in this long-running Tony Award nominated Broadway smash. Elvis Presley, The Drifters, Peggy Lee and The Coasters all scored their biggest hits with these songs by Rock and Roll Hall of Famers, Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, who gave us “Hound Dog”, “Stand By Me”, “Spanish Harlem” and countless other favourites.
This is the final performance of "Smokey Joe’s Café", which is the longest-running musical review in Broadway history, recorded live at Broadway’s Virginia Theatre and featuring the original Tony Award nominated cast in a non-stop celebration of more than 40 songs that provided the soundtrack to the lives of a generation. The superb cast showcase stunning choreography and wonderful humour as they celebrate first kisses, last dances, cool music and red-hot rock’n’roll.
