Million Dollar Quartet, which originated on Broadway in 2010 after a try-out season in Chicago and subsequently was seen in the West End in 2011 at the Noel Coward Theatre, is to be revived for its first-ever U.K. tour. It will begin performances at Leicester's Curve Sept. 14.
Inspired by the true story of the famed recording session where Sam Phillips, the “Father of Rock 'n' Roll,” brought together icons Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis and Elvis Presley, it includes more than 20 legendary rock ‘n’ roll hits, including “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Hound Dog,” “I Walk The Line” and “Great Balls of Fire.”
After Leicester, it will play Sheffield, Nottingham, Malvern, Birmingham, Edinburgh, Leeds, Glasgow, Southampton and Bristol, with further spring dates for 2017 to be announced.
Written by Colin Escott and Floyd Mutrux, this new production will be directed by Ian Talbo and produced by Simon Friend and Mark Goucher.
