Jacksonville Beach — Players by the Sea recently opened its 52nd Season with the dazzling and exciting musical, Smokey Joe’s Cafe. From the brilliant minds and hearts of Leiber and Stoller, their songs provide the basis for an electrifying entertainment that illuminates a golden age of American culture. In an idealized 50s 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. Showcasing 39 songs, including “Hound Dog”, “Love Potion #9”, “On Broadway” and “Stand By Me”, it is the longest-running revue in Broadway History.
The cast is comprised of 9 incredibly talented performers, including Andrea Adams, Andrew Pheonix, Clayton Riddley, David James, Jazz Zamor, Linzy Lauren, Milton Threadcraft III, Theo Canty and Tiffany Lake. Smokey Joe’s Cafe is directed by PBTS Production Manager Jereme Raickett, with Music Direction by Anthony Felton and Choreography by Samuel Hills III. The production runs through October 8th on the theatre’s Mainstage, with General Admission of $28.00. Tickets can be purchased by visiting www.playersbythesea.org or by calling 904.249.0289.
