All Shook Up

The Globe Theatre kicks off its 50th anniversary season on Wednesday with this musical featuring the music of Elvis Presley.

Set in 1955, the musical (which debuted on Broadway in 2005) blends elements of Dirty Dancing, Footloose, Rebel Without a Cause and more to tell the story of a motorcycle-riding rebel who arrives in a small mid-western town and proceeds to shake up the conservative townsfolk.

All Shook Up runs on the Globe Theatre’s main stage Sept. 16-Oct. 11. Check the Globe’s website for ticket info. And here’s video from 1968 of Elvis performing “All Shook Up”
