Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis return to Actors’ Playhouse at the Miracle Theatre in the high voltage rock ‘n’ roll musical Million Dollar Quartet
Actors’ Playhouse brings back the much-anticipated return of the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical Million Dollar Quartet. One of the company’s most acclaimed (and longest running) productions in its 30-year history, Million Dollar Quartet will once again rock the Balcony Theatre from May 9 – June 24, 2018.
This high voltage rock ‘n’ roll show, with book by Colin Escott and Floyd Mutrux, is inspired by the electrifying true story of the famed recording session that brought together music icons Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins for one of the greatest jam sessions of all time. Featuring over 20 timeless hits such as "Blue Suede Shoes," "Great Balls of Fire," "I Walk the Line," "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On," "Fever," "Folsom Prison Blues," "Hound Dog" and more, this thrilling musical brings audiences inside the recording studio with four major talents who came together to create a red-hot rock ‘n’ roll band for one unforgettable night.
Directed by award-winning Actors’ Playhouse Artistic Director David Arisco, this smash-hit sensation features an incredible score of rock ‘n’ roll, gospel, R&B and country hits, performed live onstage by world-class actors who play their own instruments, as well as sing and perform.
Returning cast members include Dominique Scott, who won the “Best Supporting Actor in a Musical” Carbonell Award for his role in Actors’ Playhouse’s 2016 production of Million Dollar Quartet, as Jerry Lee Lewis; Jeremy Sevelovitz as Carl Perkins, Sky Seals as Johnny Cash and Lindsey Corey as Elvis’ girlfriend Dyanne.
