Their extraordinary list of hits includes “Jailhouse Rock,” “Hound Dog,” “Treat Me Nice,” “Stand By Me,” “Spanish Harlem,” and appropriately, “On Broadway” – an unprecedented string of hits that defined the 50’s and early 60’s. The Coasters, The Drifters, Peggy Lee and Elvis Presley all had their biggest hits with Leiber/Stoller songs. SMOKEY JOE’S CAFÉ received a Grammy Award® as well as seven Tony Award® nominations, including Best Musical. It has the distinction of being the longest-running musical revue in Broadway history. The show was directed on Broadway by four-time Tony® winner Jerry Zaks. Captured in brilliant high definition.

Featuring 40 songs penned by the legendary songwriting team of Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, SMOKEY JOE'S CAFÉ brings the soundtrack of a generation to life. 2,036 performances over nearly five years earned the show the distinction of being the longest running musical revue in Broadway history.
