With its outrageous concert lighting and special effects, this rock-style production will honor the original recordings of superstars of the ’50s and ’60s, including Elvis Pressley, Big Mama Thornton, Jimmie Littlefield, The Drifters, The Coasters, Buddy Holly and many more. Showcasing timeless hits like “Jailhouse Rock,” “Stand by Me” and “There Goes My Baby,” “Smokey Joe’s Café” reminds us of the rebellion and joy of American pop-culture of the time.
