Now in its eighth year in Chicago, the smash-hit musical inspired by the famed recording session that brought together rock 'n' roll icons Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins for that one legendary night is still wowing audiences. Opened in 2008, it is Chicago's longest running Broadway musical in residence! Be prepared to rock out to classics from the Quartet such as "Blue Suede Shoes", "Fever," "That's All Right," "Sixteen Tons," "Great Balls of Fire," "Walk the Line," "Folsom Prison Blues," and "Hound Dog"!
