A Cover Story: Million Dollar Quartet

PlayBlog   A Cover Story: Million Dollar Quartet
Following a successful Chicago run, Million Dollar Quartet moves to Broadway's Nederlander Theatre March 13.

"On December 4, 1956," press notes state, "an auspicious twist of fate brought Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, and Elvis Presley together. The place was Sun Records’ storefront studio in Memphis. The man who made it happen was Sam Phillips, the 'Father of Rock 'n' Roll,' who discovered them all. The four legends-to-be united for the only time in their careers for an impromptu recording that has come to be known as one of the greatest rock jam sessions of all time. . . . Million Dollar Quartet captures the infectious spirit, freewheeling excitement and thrilling sounds of a singular moment when four of the music industry's most extraordinary talents, all in their creative prime, came together for one of the most memorable nights in music history."

Original cast members Eddie Clendening, Lance Guest, Levi Kreis and Rob Lyons are joined by Hunter Foster and Elizabeth Stanley.
