Million Dollar Quartet

Million Dollar Quartet

The Tony® Award-nominated musical MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET is set on December 4, 1956, when an extraordinary twist of fate brought Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Elvis Presley together at Sun Records in Memphis for what would be one of the greatest jam sessions ever. MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET brings that legendary December night to life with an irresistible tale of broken promises, secrets, betrayal and celebrations that is both poignant and funny.

Relive the era with the smash-hit sensation featuring an incredible score of rock ‘n’ roll, gospel, R&B and country hits, performed live onstage by world-class actors and musicians. Showcased hit songs include “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Fever,” “Walk the Line,” “Sixteen Tons,” “Who Do You Love?,” “Great Balls of Fire,” “Folsom Prison Blues,” “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On,” “Hound Dog,” and more.

The original Broadway cast, including Tony Winner Levi Kreis, bring the house down at the 2010 Tony Awards®

The original Broadway and Chicago casts talk about what makes MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET so special

(From the Broadway PLAYBILL) “A Tuesday night, shortly before Christmas 1956, four legends, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Elvis Presley gathered at the Sun Record recording studio in Memphis, Tennessee, where they’d launched their careers. Word soon leaked out of an impromptu jam session. A newspaper man who was there wrote, ‘This quartet could sell a million.’ Soon, they were dubbed the Million Dollar Quartet. This was their only performance, a cultural flashpoint that caught rock ‘n’ roll at the moment of creation.” Musical numbers: Blue Suede Shoes – Company Real Wild Child – Jerry Lee Lewis Matchbox – Carl Perkins Who Do You Love? – Carl Perkins Folsom Prison Blues – Johnny Cash Fever – Dyanne Memories Are Made Of This – Elvis Presley That’s All Right – Elvis Presley Brown Eyed Handsome Man – Company Down By The Riverside – Company Sixteen Tons/My Babe – Johnny Cash/Carl Perkins Long Tall Sally – Elvis Presley Peace In The Valley – Elvis Presley I Walk the Line – Johnny Cash I Hear You Knockin’ – Dyanne Party – Carl Perkins & Company Great Balls of Fire – Jerry Lee Lewis Hound Dog – Elvis Presley Ghost Riders – Johnny Cash See You Later, Alligator – Carl Perkins Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On – Jerry Lee Lewis
