Smokey Joe's Cafe - The Songs of Lieber and Stoller, by Jerry Lieber and Mike Stoller
You don't know what you're missing!
Saturday, November 4, 2006
5.0
I decided to see the this rendetion of the Broadway show put on by Galaxy Music Theatre in the Relapse Theatre on 14th St. I decided to go only after an invitation of a friend. I'm glad I listened. First off, the music is recognized by all as timeless, fun classics from the 50's and 60's. As a rich bonus, performers such as Tiffany Carter and Nik Alexander engage the audience and pull you right in. Caitlin Smith, performing "Pearl's a Singer" has a serious set of pipes crammed in a small body. Not only can these performers sing, they can dance too. Kudos to Jeremy McShan for choreographing some original moves. Especially in numbers like "Poison Ivy", "Jailhouse Rock" and "Trouble". This isn't your typical "song and dance" routine. The show is rife with comedic moments and the performer's personalities are allowed to shine through....ie "Shopping for Clothes", "D.W. Washburn" and especially "Some Cats Know". You'll have to go to see what I mean. In many shows, the end can be a bit lacking; not here. The final number "Stand by Me" will have you doing just that....standing and singing right along with the performers. The only reason I'm not giving this a "5" is because it was freezing in the theatre. However, once the show starts, the performers heat up the stage. Go see this! Just dress warmly.
