All Shook Up is a musical comedy built around a number of songs made famous by Elvis Presley. It’s not a biographical revue. It takes place in 1955, somewhere in Middle America, where one girl’s dream and a surprise visit from a mysterious leather-jacketed, guitar-playing stranger help a small town to discover the magic of romance and the power or rock & roll. The show is about mistaken identities, youthful rebellion and love (based on Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night). The musical features such Presley classics as “Jailhouse Rock,” “Heartbreak Hotel,” “That’s All Right,” “It’s Now or Never,” “Love Me Tender,” “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Don’t Be Cruel,” “Can’t Help Falling In Love” and “All Shook Up.
