Million Dollar Quartet Box Office Now Open

Now I don't know about you but I am really looking forward to seeing Million Dollar Quartet. To be honest when it was first announced I really didn't know what it was about except that it was based on the historic jam session in December 1956 between Johnny Cash,Jerry Lee Lewis,Carl Perkins,and Elvis Presley. The show which premiered in Chicago last year to rave reviews is set to begin previews at the Nederlander Theatre on March 13 with an official opening set for April 15. Here is a brief synopsis of the show according to the production source.

"On December 4, 1956 an auspicious twist of fate brought Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, and Elvis Presley together. The place was Sun Records’ storefront studio in Memphis. The man who made it happen was Sam Phillips, the 'Father of Rock 'n' Roll,' who discovered them all. The four legends-to-be united for the only time in their careers for an impromptu recording that has come to be known as one of the greatest rock jam sessions of all time. . . . Million Dollar Quartet captures the infectious spirit, freewheeling excitement and thrilling sounds of a singular moment when four of the music industry's most extraordinary talents, all in their creative prime, came together for one of the most memorable nights in music history."

Some of the songs featured in the show are such classics such as "Blue Suede Shoes," "Fever," "Sixteen Tons," "Who Do You Love?," "Great Balls of Fire," "Riders in the Sky," "I Walk the Line," "Folsom Prison Blues" and "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On."

Now except for Carl Perkins I am very familiar with most of the music. I for one hope the show does well. If the show is as well received as it was in Chicago then I expect it to be the sleeper hit of the season. Get your tickets to see Million Dollar Quartet on Broadway. It should make for a fun night in the theatre.
