    Show Summary

    The Tony® Award-nominated musical captures the singular moment when four major talents came together to become a red-hot rock ‘n’ roll band.

    Million Dollar Quartet is set on December 4, 1956, when an extraordinary twist of fate brought Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Elvis Presley, and newcomer Jerry Lee Lewis together at Sun Records in Memphis, Tennessee for what would be one of the greatest jam sessions ever. Word leaked out about this impromptu rendez-vous and a newspaper man captured the moment in an article printed in the Memphis Press-Scimitar by writing, “This quartet could sell a million.” Soon, they were dubbed the Million Dollar Quartet.

    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, including “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.
