Tony® Award Winning Broadway musical Million Dollar Quartet will premiere at the Fox Theatre March 12-17, 2013. Million Dollar Quartet is set on December 4, 1956 when a twist of fate brought Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Elvis Presley together. Sam Phillips, the "Father of Rock 'n' Roll" who was responsible for launching the careers of each star, brought the four musicians together at the famous Sun Records studio in Memphis for the first and only time. That unforgetable night in the storefront studio became known as one of the greatest rock 'n' roll jame session in history.
Featuring rock, gospel, R&B, and country tunes including, "Blue Suede Shoes," "Fever," "Sixteen Tons," "Who Do You Love?," "Folsom Prison Blues," "Great Balls of Fire," "Matchbox," "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On," "Hound Dog," and so much more.
Portraying these unforgettable stars are original Broadwy cast member Robert Britton Lyons as Carl Perkins, Martin Kaye as Jerry Lee Lewis, David Elkins as Johnny Cash, and Cody Slaughter as Elvis Presley. Vince Nappo is the "Father of Rock 'n' Roll," Sam Phillips.
Million Dollar Quartet opened on Broadway in April, 2010 to unanimous praise from critics and audiences. The New York Times called the show, "a buoyant new musical that whips the crowd into a frenzy." The Chicago production of Million Dollar Quartet opened in 2008 and is still playing to full houses at the Apollo Theatre.
Tickets for the national tour will go on sale just in time for the holidays, November 18. Tickets start at $33.00 and will be available at the Fox Theatre box office, or telephone 1-855-TIXX.
