There will be “a whole lotta shakin’ goin’ on” at PlayhouseSquare October 11-23 when MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET rocks and rolls into Cleveland as part of the KeyBank Broadway Series.
“This wildly entertaining show wonderfully captures the spirit of these seminal figures who would go on to change the course of popular music.” The Hollywood Reporter
“The kind of jaw-dropping turns that snap your head to the stage and unlock your feet from the floor." Chicago Tribune
“MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET explodes off the stage with a rhythm and a drive that soar through the house, creating a feeling of instant joy.” The Record
"The strongest indication of the magic that must have taken place, as four great musicians with troubled lives and complicated careers came together to forget everything but what they loved to do most: express the riotous joy, beauty and sadness of life in songs that shoot straight for the soul." New York Times
"This is an enjoyable, feel-good musical with a soundtrack to die for.” The Independent
“Find yourself hand-jiving, tapping your feet and wanting to scream and shout.” Whatsonstage.com
With eight nominations, a Tony and Outer Critics’ Circle award, MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET has won the hearts of fans from New York to Chicago to London and is now headed across the United States on the National Tour that kicks off right here in Cleveland!
On December 4, 1956 four musicians – Carl Perkins, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash and Jerry Lee Lewis - meet to jam in Memphis, Tennessee.
Returning to the studio that launched their careers will they become the most amazing band ever formed for one night only?
Or will broken promises, secrets and betrayals “rattle their brains” as four musical legends try to find “Peace in the Valley.”
An extraordinary moment in music history comes to life on stage.
Did You Know?
On December 5, 1956, the day after the session, Memphis Press Scimitar reporter Bob Johnson wrote an article with the headline MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET.
Along with the article was a photograph of the four legends around a piano.
Johnson was noted to say, "If Sam Phillips had been on his toes, he'd have turned the recorder on. That quartet could sell a million."
