All Shook Up

Combining all-time favorite Elvis Presley songs with a surefire rock’n’roll story, “All Shook Up,” the musical that took Broadway by storm last season, will ride into Atlanta for a strictly limited engagement of eight performances at The Fox Theatre from April 24 - April 29 as part of the Fidelity Investments Broadway Across America-Atlanta 2006-2007 season.

Headed by new-comer Joe Mandragona along with Jenny Fellner, fresh from Broadway's “Mamma Mia,” along with TV, stage and screen favorite Susan Anton, “All Shook Up” tells the romantic tale of how a young girl’s dream comes true when a guitar-playin’ roustabout rides into a square state and turns the town upside down with his hip-swivelin’, lip-curlin’ and sexy song singin’.

“All Shook Up” features a clever book by Joe DiPietro (“I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change”), with direction by Tony Award-nominee Christopher Ashley (“The Rocky Horror Show”). The production boasts 24 of Presley’s classic hit songs including "Heartbreak Hotel," "Burning Love," "Jailhouse Rock," "Blue Suede Shoes," “It’s Now or Never,” and "Don't Be Cruel." Sergio Trujillo, who is currently represented on Broadway with the hit musical “Jersey Boys,” choreographs this well-tuned, hot-rod musical that took Broadway by storm and guarantees to have your entire family jumpin’ out of their blue suede shoes!

Producers Richard Martini, Allen Spivak, Albert Nocciolino and Magic Arts & Entertainment have reunited the original Broadway design team, including set designer David Rockwell, costumes designer David C. Woolard and lighting designer Donald Holder for this first national touring production. For more information on the show, visit
