It's better than barbecue. "Smokey Joe's Cafe: The Songs of Leiber and Stoller," the exuberant show that began life at Theo Ubique Cabaret Theatre and has recently been playing in a commercial run at the Royal George Theatre Cabaret, 1641 N. Halsted, has now been extended through June 30.

The hit production, which has received rave reviews all along the way, recently received five non-Equity Jeff Award nominations -- for best production of a revue, best ensemble, best director (Brenda Didier), best choreographer (also Didier) and best music direction (Jeremy Ramey).

Reprising their roles from the original production is the full cast, which includes Justin Adair, Kasey Alfonso, Sydney Charles, TJ Crawford, Robin K. DaSilva, Vasily Deris, Jaymes Osborne, Steven Perkins and Britt-Marie Sivertsen. The band includes Danny Howard (drums), Zach Moore (bass), Kory Danielson (piano) and Joshua Therriault (sax).

For tickets ($25 - $46.50) call (312) 988-9000 or visit www.ticketmaster.

This show is so much fun. Anyone who grew up with this music will have the time of their life! It's the kind of show you leave with a big smile on your face, and even wanting to see again!

Don't miss this one!
