There'll Be A Whole Lot Of Shaking Going On At Rivertown with MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET

There'll Be A Whole Lot Of Shaking Going On At Rivertown with MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET Rivertown Theaters continues to raise the theatrical bar with their premiere local production of "Million Dollar Quartet," one of the most challenging shows for actors who play musical instruments, sing, and portray the four music world's iconic legends who created "Rock & Roll."

The Tony nominated and award winner Million Dollar Quartet is the smash-hit musical inspired by the famed recording sessions that brought together rock n' roll icons Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins for the first and only time. On December 4, 1956, these four young musicians gathered at Sun Records in Memphis for what would be one of the greatest jam sessions ever. This thrilling musical brings theatergoers inside the recording studio with four major talents who came together as a red-hot rock n' roll band for one unforgettable night. Million Dollar Quartet 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 more.
