MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET is the high voltage Tony® Award-winning Broadway musical, inspired by the phenomenal true story of the famed recording session where Sam Phillips, the “Father of Rock ‘n’ Roll,” brought together icons Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Carl Perkins for one unforgettable night of musical magic.  Come inside the famed Sun Records recording studio for a night of rockabilly ruckus that explodes off the stage, featuring 21 timeless hits including “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Sixteen Tons,” “Great Balls of Fire,” “I Walk the Line,” “Fever,” and “Hound Dog.”


Great balls of fire! Jaw-dropping and hugely enjoyable!”
