Synopsis: Gripping Rock-n-Roll Original
This incredible musical, inspired by an actual event, will take you back to the place where rock-n-roll was born! On December 4, 1956, at Sun Studios in Memphis, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, and Elvis Presley came together for the first and only time. They rocked the house...then rocked the world! These four legends-to-be and the "Father of Rock-n-Roll," Sam Phillips, who discovered them all, united for an impromptu recording session that would be one for the ages. The musicians played, talked, played, joked, played, argued, and played all night — and were quickly christened the "Million Dollar Quartet." Part jam session, part bull session, and chock full of rock-n-roll classics from the 50s, this unforgettable new musical will have you dancing in the aisles.
