This stunning, foot-stomping musical tale of redemption follows the story of Matthew Porter, proprietor of the once famous blues and rock & roll juke joint, which featured some of the most electrifying performers of all time: Ray Charles, Little Richard, Elton John, Sam Cooke, Muddy Waters, Jelly Roll Morton, Big Joe Turner, Lionel Richie, and Jerry Lee Lewis. When the Roadhouse starts to deteriorate, Matthew launches a plan to save the Roadhouse by earning the building a place on the National Register of Historic Places. With 21 on-stage costume changes and 115 different sound effects, the audience will laugh, sing, and be inspired by this live musical experience.
