The original Broadway production of All Shook Up opened at the Palace Theatre March 24, 2005. The musical, featuring the songs of Elvis Presley, played 33 previews and 213 performances before closing September 25, 2005.

With a book by Joe DiPietro, All Shook Up tells the story of a mysterious, leather-jacketed stranger who shakes up a small Midwestern town in the 1950s. The tale of cross-dressing, mistaken identity, and romance was inspired by Twelfth Night and other Shakespearean comedies.
