In December of 1956, rock and roll history was made. That’s when Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Elvis Presley had a spontaneous jam session together in Memphis, TN. Luckily, someone in the sound booth hit record… because the evening became known as one of the greatest rock ‘n’ roll jam sessions in all of history.
The recordings have been turned into a show now playing at Denver’s Buell Theater. Million Dollar Quartet will take you inside the studio with music portraying these legendary characters and featuring a score of timeless rock hits like “That’s All Right” and “Ring of Fire.” Just try to resist tapping your toes to “Blue Suede Shoes” or showing off some moves when you hear “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On.” This show is about great music, plain and simple. But there is some drama and a few plot twists that hold the audience’s attention throughout.
Grab your tickets now for the national tour of Broadway musical Million Dollar Quartet, a high-energy, rock ‘n’ roll-inspired show that will be at Denver’s Buell Theatre through March 9 only.
