From Samuel French:

The story of Elvis Presley told through the eyes of 17 Women! Some Enthralled! Some Appalled, ALL OBSESSED! A fast paced series of 5 comedic plays and 3 monologues based on the Life of Elvis Presley. From Tupelo Mississippi 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 & just being a nice guy can bring to others!

"Perfect Monologues" - Outer Critics Circle

"Jannuzzi has a good ear for the periods and for his characters allowing his actors to show range. The point is perhaps not so much about Elvis per se, but instead these scenes reveal snapshots of an American culture, people, and place." -

"His plays unfold in such an intimate and genuine way. He writes about Elvis Presley fans with educated and unconventional twists." -

"Bravo. Much Applause." - Mario Fratti

"Jannuzzi worked with his biographical and dramatic material with smooth transitions and captivating creativity." -

"In a nearly chronological order, the stand-alone scenes take place between the 1940s and the present day. Each scene is listed in the program with a date and location, driving home the point that these characters and situations are best understood within the context of their period." -
