March 25, 2005: Cra-a-a-ck! What you have just heard is the sound of a camel's back breaking. Yet another synthetic jukebox musical opened last night on Broadway, fresh off the assembly line. And theatergoers have responded by mobbing Times Square in spontaneous "Take Back the Stage" demonstrations. Just listen to the angry, empowering sound of their chanting: "Hey, hey! Ho, ho!

A new musical comedy set in 1955, All Shook Up is not a biographical revue. Somewhere in middle America -- one girl's dream and a surprise visit from a mysterious leather-jacketed, guitar-playing stranger will lead a small town to discover the magic of romance and the power of rock & roll. This irresistible new musical features 24 legendary Elvis classics including "Heartbreak Hotel," "Love Me Tender," "Don't Be Cruel," "Can't Help Falling in Love," and "All Shook Up."
