MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET Comes to the Warner

The Tony Award-winning Broadway musical, MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET, inspired by the electrifying true story, rocks the Warner Theatre on Wednesday, September 19 at 8 pm.

On December 4, 1956, an auspicious twist of fate brought together Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Elvis Presley. Sam Phillips, the undisputed "Father of Rock 'n' Roll" gathered these four legends for the first and only time at Sun Records in Memphis for what would be one of the greatest rock 'n' roll jam sessions ever.

MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET brings that unbelievable musical moment to life, with an irresistible tale of broken promises, secrets, betrayal, humor, celebration and unforgettable performances featuring timeless and enduring hits including "Blue Suede Shoes," "Fever," "That's All Right," "Sixteen Tons," "I Walk The Line," "Great Balls of Fire," "Folsom Prison Blues," "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On," "Hound Dog" and more.

The four music icons of MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET are portrayed by Daniel Durston as Elvis Presley, Billy Rude as Jerry Lee Lewis, Austin Hohnke as Carl Perkins, and Peter Oyloe as Johnny Cash. Hugh Hysell plays Sam Philips. The cast also features Tiffan Borelli as Dyanne, Bill Morey as Brother Jay (Jay Perkins), and Jon Rossi as Fluke.

MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET won a Tony Award for Best Performance by a Featured Actor in a Musical and received two Tony nominations, one for Best Musical and one for Best Book of a Musical (Colin Escott and Floyd Mutrux). The show received an Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Featured Actor in a Musical, a Drama Desk nomination for Outstanding Musical Revue, and three Drama League nominations including Distinguished Production of a Musical and Distinguished Performance.
