ALL SHOOK UP, a musical comedy built around 26 songs popularized by Elvis Presley, premiered on Broadway in 2005, and has since become a favorite of high school, college, and regional theatres around the world. Tony Award-winning playwright Joe DiPietro (Memphis; I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change; Nice Work If You Can Get It) wrote the book for the musical, which is inspired by Shakespearean comedies like Twelfth Night.
