The Tony Award-nominated Million Dollar Quartet explodes on stage with a monumental night of rock ‘n’ roll! On December 4, 1956, a twist of fate brought Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Elvis Presley together at Sun Records in Memphis, Tennessee. The foursome held an impromptu jam session and producer Sam Phillips, knowing he was witnessing a once-in-a-lifetime event, had the session captured on camera by the local newspaper. The picture from that chance meeting was dubbed ‘Million Dollar Quartet’ and became a legend in rock ‘n roll history. Featuring an incredible jukebox of hits like Hound Dog, Blue Suede Shoes, Folsom Prison Blues, That’s All Right, Great Balls of Fire and a whole lot more, Million Dollar Quartet captures the contagious spirit, freewheeling excitement and powerhouse performances of music’s most famous recording session!
