“Wildly Infectious!”

-NY Daily News



As much as anyone, Leiber and Stoler invented Rock ‘n’ Roll. their timeless songs provide the basis for this electrifying entertainment that had critics raving and audiences stampeding the box office during its record-braking Broadway run.

Smokey Joe’s Cafe was conceived by Stephen Helper, Jack Viertel, and Otis Sallid. Presented in a revue format with no unifying theme, featuring nearly 40 of the greatest songs ever recorded, sung by members of the cast in various combinations, with no dialogue including hits such as “On Broadway,” “Hound Dog,” “Jailhouse Rock,” “Stand By Me,” “Spanish Harlem,” “Love Potion #9,” and “I’m A Woman”.
Each song is a trip down the corridors of American culture. Smokey Joe’s Cafe transforms classic pop music into compelling musical theatre.

Celebrating the humor, passion, and heartbreak of everyday life, this classic show is set to thrill a new generation of theatergoers with its enduring themes and searing emotions.

The show is so infectiously fun that it’s easy to see why the original 1995 Broadway incarnation ran for 2,036 performances, still a record for a musical revue.
