Smokey Joes Cafe

September 24 - October 10, 2010

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 hilarious set-pieces and slice-of-life emotions. Featuring nearly 40 of the greatest songs ever recorded, SMOKEY JOE’S CAFE isn’t just great pop music – it’s compelling musical theatre.



  • “Gary and Erin Lewis, the driving force behind San Diego Musical Theatre, have mounted a first-class production to open the company’s 2010-11 season. Aided by Don Le Master’s music direction, Ron Kellum’s fluid staging and exciting dance moves energize every number in the show.”
    -  Bill Eadie, San Diego Story
  • “Credit director-choreographer Ron Kellum and his versatile, well-balanced cast of four women and five men. And give music director and conductor Don LeMaster his due, too, for leading the seven-piece band through the show’s 38 songs with plenty of pop and texture.”
    -  James Hebert, Union Trubune
