More about Million Dollar Quartet the Musical - Friendship, Fame and Genius
Million Dollar Quartet the Musical was inspired by a real meeting that occurred in late 1956 at Sun Records in Memphis. Organised by Sun Records' boss Sam Phillips, the get together took place when 'The Million Dollar Quartet', as the men were collectively known, were in their creative prime. Elvis Presley was already a huge star, with Johnny Cash hot on his heels. Carl Perkins had just had a hit with 'Blue Suede Shoes' and Jerry Lee Lewis had recently been signed by Sun Records.
Peppered with familiar tunes including 'Great Balls of Fire', 'Hound Dog', 'I Walk The Line' and 'Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On', Million Dollar Quartet the Musical tells a tale of friendship, fame and the collision of genius. Yet, plot takes a backseat to songs that have stood the test of time, electrifying fans of jukebox musicals with their rockin' spirit. This Morning's Eamonn Holmes described the show as 'a billion dollar hit'; with audiences scampering for Million Dollar Quartet tickets, the musical has earned its coin in both critical and public acclaim.
