Maine's Ogunquit Playhouse brings back the most popular show in its history, the Tony Award-winning musical Million Dollar Quartet, which is presented October 5-November 6.
Featuring a book by Colin Escott and Floyd Mutrux, the musical was inspired by the true story of the famed recording session that brought together music icons Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins for one of the greatest jam sessions of all time. The production features such hits as "Blue Suede Shoes," "Great Balls of Fire," "I Walk the Line," "Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On," "Fever," "Folsom Prison Blues," "Hound Dog" and more.
The cast is led by Nat Zegree as Jerry Lee Lewis, Scott Moreau as Johnny Cash, James Barry as Carl Perkins, Beau Cassidy as Elvis Presley, Jason Loughlin as Sam Phillips, Bligh Voth as Dyanne, Nathan Yates Douglass as Carl Perkins' brother Jay and David Sonneborn as Fluke, the drummer.
Tony nominee Hunter Foster, who played the role of Sam Phillips in the original Broadway production, directs with associate direction by his wife, Broadway actress Jennifer Cody. The Ogunquit Playhouse again features the original Broadway set designed by Derek McLane with additional scenic elements designed by Adam Koch. The associate scenic designer is Steven Royal, the costume designer is Molly Walz, the sound designers are Justin Stasiw and Kevin Heard, and the lighting designer is Richard Latta.
