Because Summertime Ain't for Thinkin'

Our appetites for entertainment change with the seasons. Sure, in winter you want something brooding and philosophical. But in summer, man, you just want to party. Water Tower Theatre understands this, so they've brought in a showstopper, it's Smokey Joe's Cafe and it goes down easier than a root beer float in July. This musical revue has every song you've ever chair danced to: “Hound Dog,” “Dance With Me,” “Love Potion # 9,” all 39 of 'em. It's more than just a crowd-pleaser, this bad boy has snagged seven Tony noms and one bonified Grammy award — so it's safe to say Smokey Joe's soothes even the most difficult judges. You're in good hands, too. Water Tower doesn't mess around with musicals. Join them as they perform the greatest hits that ever were from Friday though Sunday, August 12.Tickets start at $20.
