‘All Shook Up’ at Davis Center for the Performing Arts
Musical theater » Elvis meets Shakespeare meets music in CenterPoint Legacy’s production.
First Published Jun 27 2012 09:51 am • Last Updated Jun 27 2012 09:51 am

Shakespeare directors have put "Hamlet" in holster and spur, so why not play "Twelfth Night" to an Elvis soundtrack?

That’s the premise behind Joe DiPietro’s "All Shook Up" played to a song-list made famous by Elvis Presley. The 2005 Broadway musical won the 2005 Theatre World Award, and was nominated for the Drama Desk Award’s Outstanding Set Design that same year, so it’s good enough for the cast of CenterPoint Legacy Theatre. The characters Chad, Natalie and Dennis play out this rockin’, 1950s musical somewhere in the United States’ Midwest with CenterPoint Legacy’s rotating cast of Spencer Hunsicker, Luke Monday and Madison Hanson (Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday) and Heather White, Jake Taylor, and Austin Singley (Monday, Wednesday, Friday).

Every song from "Jailhouse Rock" to "Heartbreak Hotel" and the title track get a full hearing, all to the plot of Shakespeare’s best comedy.

Shakespeare fans who also adore The King will rejoice. Theater fans who like either will no doubt also have a good time.
