Synopsis

It's December 1956 when four Sun Record artists just happen to bump into each other at the label's storefront studio and start to jam. Presley. Cash. Lewis. Perkins. Recorded by the legendary father of rock and roll Sam Phillips

This is a highly stylized version of the session. The original tapes included a bit of Christmas music, were heavy on traditional and gospel, had some Bill Monroe and then segued into 50s rock. In fact, of the 21 songs in the current show, only three - "Down by the Riverside," "Brown Eyed Handsome Man" and "Peace in the Valley" were actually part of the original session

Note "Million Dollar Quartet" was the title of an article about the session written by Bob Johnson of the Memphis Press-Scimitar published December 5th, the day after the session

The Road to Broadway

Staged readings at Washington's Village Theatre in 2006 led to a full production in 2007 that broke all of the theater's records. The show was next staged at Chicago's Goodman Theater from September 26 to October 26, 2008. Upon closing it immediately transferred to the Windy City's Apollo Theater, where it was extended to March 28, 2010

(That leaves us a bit puzzled. We assumed that the Chicago cast would make the Broadway transfer; the two-week overlap between the March 13th NYC previews and the Chicago closing are confusing)
