Jerry Lee Lewis Biography

He began playing the piano at age 9, copying the styles of preachers and black musicians that traveled through the area. He signed with Sun Records in 1956 and quickly became a star. He was the first person inducted into the first class of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1986.

This nearly lifelong musician and singer continues to record new music and perform around the world. For 2006‚Äôs ‚ÄúLast Man Standing‚ÄĚ, Lewis sang a number of rock, blues and country classics with some help from such famous admirers as Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson and Buddy Guy. Collaborator Kristofferson described Lewis as ‚Äúone of the few who can do rock ‚Äėn‚Äô roll, country or soul, and every song is authentic.‚ÄĚ He told USA Today that Lewis is ‚Äúone of the best American voices ever.‚ÄĚ

Review: It's Not Hell, It's HADESTOWN Photo Review: It's Not Hell, It's HADESTOWN
by Chris Arneson - Sep 7, 2022

What did our critic think of HADESTOWN? It's essentially the retelling of the Greek tragedy of Orpheus and Eurydice. Narrated by Hermes--played by a terrifically charismatic Levi Kreiss, who infuses the role with bit of his Tony-winning performance of Jerry Lee Lewis in Million Dollar Quartet--the story is told through what feels like a New Orleans underground jazz club. Orpheus (Chibueze Ihuoma) falls in love with his muse, the wandering Eurydice (Morgan Siobhan Green). However, Orpheus, a musician, becomes consumed with his work, leaving the starved Eurydice to take shelter with Hades (Kevyn Morrow) and his wife Persephone (Kimberly Marable).
