The Tony Award Winning musical, MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET takes place on December 4, 1956, when an extraordinary twist of fate brought Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Elvis Presley together.

Relive the era with the smash-hit sensation featuring an incredible score of rock 'n' roll, gospel, R&B and country hits, performed live onstage by world-class actors and musicians. Showcased hit songs include: "Blue Suede Shoes," "I Walk the Line," "Great Balls of Fire,""Sixteen Tons," "Who Do You Love?," "Fever," "Folsom Prison Blues," "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On," "Hound Dog," and more.
