Co-Owner and Producing Artistic Director Richard Dolce welcomes back audiences with hope and optimism, "After more than a year of darkness, we are so grateful and proud to be producing theater once again. We are especially excited to reopen our Main Stage with SMOKEY JOE’S CAFE - which was the first show ever performed on the Engeman stage back in June of 2007.” Co-Owner and Managing Director Kevin O’Neill emphasizes, “There is nothing as exciting as sharing the joy of live theater with fellow audience members and feeling the electricity of an in-person band and cast of talented performers."
SMOKEY JOE’S CAFE: The Songs of Leiber and Stoller, the Grammy® Award-winning and Tony Award®-nominated smash, made history as Broadway’s longest-running musical revue. Featuring 40 of the greatest songs of the past century, including showstopping classics like “On Broadway,” “Stand by Me,” “Jailhouse Rock,” “Hound Dog,” “Love Potion No. 9,” “Spanish Harlem,” “Yakety Yak” and “Charlie Brown,” it celebrates the music of the legendary songwriting duo, Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller.

The five-time Tony Award®-nominated Broadway musical smash ROCK OF AGES tells the story of a small-town girl, a city boy, and a rock ‘n’ roll romance on the Sunset Strip. But when the bar where rock reigns supreme is set to be demolished, it’s up to these wannabe rockers and their band of friends to save the day — and the music. ROCK OF AGES' electric score features all your favorite ’80s rock anthems and power ballads, including “Every Rose has its Thorn,” “I Wanna Know What Love is,” Here I Go Again,” “Don’t Stop Believin’,” and more! So, get ready to rock and roll all night. Or at least until the curtain goes down. January 13 - February 27, 2022
