You’ll enjoy this show because:

This is the show our audiences insisted we bring back! All the excitement, all the energy, all the thrills of watching the birth of Rock ‘n’ Roll by four of its greatest innovators. Once the live band on stage kicks in, sitting still is nearly impossible. When we presented this show in 2017, we literally had guests dancing and cheering in the aisles!

 

The Story:

This thrilling, smash-hit Broadway musical takes you inside Sun recording studio for an unforgettable night of Rock ‘n’ Roll inspired by the famed recording session that brought together Rock ‘n’ Roll icons Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins for the first and only time. On December 4, 1956, these four young musicians gathered at Sun Records for one of the greatest jam sessions ever. MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET brings that legendary night to life featuring a score of rock hits including “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Fever,” “That’s All Right, Mama” “Sixteen Tons’” “Great Balls of Fire,” “Whole Lotta Shakin Goin’ On,” “Who Do You Love,” “Hound Dog” and many more

 

The Reviews:
