So, if you’re lonesome tonight and looking to keep the King’s memory alive, there are plenty of impersonators willing to be your teddy bear.

Dissed by major critics at its March 2005 Broadway debut, Joe DiPietro’s jukebox Elvis Presley musical “All Shook Up” now qualifies as a hit in Annapolis.
The Talent Machine Company cast has energy and youthful enthusiasm combined with vocal and dancing skills to create a show brimming with vitality at St. John’s College’s Key Auditorium.
Invited to choose a show for her Talent Machine Company directorial debut, Vicki Sussman suggested “All Shook Up” for “its great Elvis music, its terrific vocal and dance arrangements, and for the wonderful characters who have great heart,” she said. Having directed teen shows for more than 32 years, Sussman appreciates the wholehearted dedication that Talent Machine’s teen cast brings to every show.
