Synopsis

On December 4, 1956, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, and Elvis Presley all found themselves at Sun Records in Memphis, Tennessee, and proceeded to record a legendary jam album. A Tony® Award Winning musical, Million Dollar Quartet recounts that single night with the meaningful and humorous story of five men’s journeys through the music business. A venerable rock concert where audiences relive the glory days of early rock and roll, the score features major hits performed live onstage by legendary characters.
