Why See Million Dollar Quartet?

Broadway ShowsMusicals


Featuring an incredibly talented cast who all play and sing their instruments live, this musical, that has been dazzling Chicago audience ever since it opened in 2008 gives you the chance to witness the birth of the greatest rock 'n' roll band that never was.


On a cold and wet December night in 1956, four young musicians gathered at Sun Records in Memphis for what would be one of the greatest recording sessions ever. You may have heard of them - Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis, between them making up the eponymous "million dollar quartet". Not an easy feat back in the Fifties!

This impromptu jam session would become the basis of musical legend, with four icons of the rock 'n' roll era together singing and recording in one room for the first and only time.

Fortunately for the rest of us, a quick-thinking sound engineer who was working at the time was smart enough to press 'record' for posterity. And thanks to this man, we have the chance to experience the goings-on in that studio, albeit half a century later!

MDQ brings that legendary night to life, featuring a score of rock hits including Blue Suede Shoes, Fever, That's All Right, Sixteen Tons, Great Balls of Fire, Walk the Line, Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On, Who Do You Love?, Matchbox, Folsom Prison Blues, Hound Dog and many, many more. If you're a fan of the Golden Age of Rock, this is one musical you simply cannot miss.
