All Shook Up is a celebration of life and self-discovery. "It really has a deeper meaning than I expected," says Montour-Larson. "The play deals with the underlying theme of race relations. It's about the freedom to be who you really are and the freedom to love who you want to love." Along with other favorites like "Hound Dog" and "Blue Suede Shoes, the musical includes many of Presleys more obscure songs.
