Synopsis

  • Written by Luigi Januzzi, it’s the story of Elvis Presley told through the a fast-paced series of five comedic plays and three monologues based on the life of The King.
  • From Tupelo, Miss., where 11-year-old Elvis wanted a BB gun instead of a guitar, to “The Steve Allen Show;” from President Richard Nixon’s office, to Andy Warhol’s studio; from Cadillac salesmen, to Graceland guards; this is a touching, bring-the-family comedy with a heart that captures the effects that fame, generosity and just being a nice guy can bring to others.
