JAN. 20 - FEB. 18, 2018

Directed by HUNTER FOSTER

The electrifying Tony Award-winning musical Million Dollar Quartet brings you inside the recording studio to relive the evening of December 4, 1956. In an extraordinary twist of fate, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Elvis Presley find themselves together at Sun Records in Memphis for what would be one of the greatest jam sessions in history. Step back in time to experience an irresistible tale of broken promises, secrets and celebrations. Million Dollar Quartet boasts powerhouse performances with an incredible score of rock ‘n’ roll, R&B and country hits, including “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Fever,” “Walk the Line,” “Great Balls of Fire,” “Folsom Prison Blues,” “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On,” “Hound Dog” and more.

"A breakneck hour and 45 minutes of rock 'n' roll heaven." - Chicago Sun-Times


ADVISORY:
Million Dollar Quartet is appropriate for adults and teenage audiences. Elvis’s sultry dance moves on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1956 wouldn’t exactly shock audiences today, and neither will the mild adult language and content in this exhilarating musical.

RUNNING TIME: The show runs approximately 2 hours and 15 minutes, including one intermission.
