On December 4, 1956, musical history was inadvertently made when Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Carl Perkins all ended up at the legendary Sun Records recording studio in Memphis, Tennessee on the same night and proceeded to record one of the most epic jam sessions of all time. Million Dollar Quartet, the Tony winning smash hit Broadway musical playing at Harrah’s in Las Vegas, tells the amazing story of the night that four of the greatest icons in rock n’ roll history came together for one unforgettable night.
The musical tells the sometimes funny, sometimes heartfelt, and sometimes dramatic story of how the four larger than life personalities bonded and complimented each other, and how their four equally large egos clashed. But more than anything, the show is about the music, as the talented actors perform absolutely smoking versions of classic rock, R n’ B, country, and gospel tunes made famous by the from the four icons. Songs including Folsom Prison Blues, Ring of Fire, Walk the Line, Great Balls of Fire, Blue Suede Shoes, Hound Dog, Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On, Sixteen Tons, Fever, and many more will have the crowd on their feet, dancing and clapping along to the music.
The actors embody the roles of Elvis, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, and Jerry Lee Lewis perfectly, capturing their mannerisms and performance styles as well as the intangible elements that made them unforgettable superstars who laid the groundwork for the next century of popular music.
This toe-tapping, Broadway-caliber production at Harrah’s filled with wall to wall classic tunes tells the unlikely story of one of the most magical nights in musical history when a quartet of friends, rivals, collaborators, and legends came together to jam.
