The Tony Award-winning Broadway musical 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 for one unforgettable night at Sun Records in Memphis, TN. Featuring over 20 Rock ‘n’ Roll hits including “Blue Suede Shoes”, “Folsom Prison Blues”, “That’s All Right”, “Hound Dog”, “See You Later, Alligator”, and “Great Balls of Fire”, this incredible musical is sure to get your toes tappin’ and hands clappin’ as these legendary performers come to life on our stage!

Million Dollar Quartet is rated PG. The show is based on the true events of December 4, 1956, when Sam Philips brought Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Carl Perkins together for an impromptu recording session at Sun Studios in Memphis, TN. While our production seeks to honor these iconic artists and their legacies, the dialogue and subject matter are representative both of their real personalities and the cultural mores and social issues of the day. The production contains cigarette smoking, whiskey consumption, and mild adult language (the words “hell,” “damn,” and “ass” are used). The show also contains frank dialogue that is reflective of the brewing racial tensions of the 50s and of the poverty faced by farmers in the rural South.

Mainstage. $29 Adult, $27 Senior, $24 Group/Military, $16 Student/Child. The show runs April 28 through June 9, 2017.
