ABOUT THE SHOW:
Million Dollar Quartet: the hit musical with productions in New York, Chicago and touring across North America, is now seeking actors to sail in the roles of Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Carl Perkins.
On December 4, 1956, an auspicious twist of fate brought these legends together. The place was Sun Records’ studio in Memphis. The man who made it happen was Sam Phillips, the “Father of Rock and Roll,” who discovered them all. The four young musicians united for the only time in their careers for an impromptu recording that has come to be known as one of the greatest rock jam sessions of all time. Inspired by the true story, MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET features a treasure trove of the greatest rock and roll, gospel, R&B and country hits from these musicians, including such iconic songs as “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Fever,” “Sixteen Tons,” “Who Do You Love?,” “Great Balls of Fire,” “Riders in the Sky,” “I Walk the Line,” “Folsom Prison Blues,” and “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On.”
