Promoted as a cleverly camouflaged rendition of Shakespeare's comedy “Twelfth Night,” with its employment of star-crossed lovers, mistaken sexual identify and such, Joe DiPietro’s jukebox musical “All Shook Up” is mostly a high-energy mash-up of Elvis Presley  tunes and production numbers that rock the room. Mercury Summer Stock's rendition is nothing short of a blue suede smash-hit.

If you like Elvis’s songs, are in the mood for escapist theatre wrapped in a nearly non-existent plot, and want to see lots of high school and college kids have a good time performing, ALL SHOOK UP! could be your thing.

The production itself is thoroughly engaging, thanks to detailed direction and choreography by Pierre-Jacques Brault and more than a few winning performances.

"All Shook Up" is a high-energy, grooving good time, especially for fans of 1950s music...the power of a great ensemble really comes through ...when the group stands together in the name of love and just belts it out... "All Shook Up" is good fun -- toe-tapping music and a talented cast.

If you want a toe tapping night of Elvis music performed by a talented young cast, don’t miss All Shook Up in it’s closing weekend at Notre Dame College in South Euclid.
