This is the longest running revue in Broadway history, and it’s coming to Albany’s Capital Rep this week. A collection of 39 hits by the dynamic songwriter team of Mike Leiber and Jerry Stoller, Smokey Joe’s Café’s may pull you in with the Elvis hits (“Hound Dog” and “Jailhouse Rock”), but the breadth of the artists the team wrote for (Dion, the Drifters, the Coasters, Peggy Lee) means that this show is so much more.
Smokey Joe’s Café will be in previews tomorrow (Friday, July 11) through Sunday (July 13) at 7:30 PM at Capital Repertory Theatre (111 N. Pearl St., Albany). Opening night is Tuesday (July 15) at 7:30 PM; the show will run through Aug. 10. Tickets are $20 to $60; student tickets (with a valid ID) are $16. For more info, call 445-7469.
