BWW Review: Rock-N-Roll Lives On Through the MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET at Arkansas Reper Photo BWW Review: Rock-N-Roll Lives On Through the MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET at Arkansas Repertory Theatre
by Theresa Bertram - Sep 10, 2019

Rock-n-Roll came alive on the Arkansas Repertory Theatre stage Sunday afternoon as the 'Million Dollar Quartet' told the story of Sam Phillips (Karack Osborn) and his history with 'my boys' Elvis Presley (Trent Rowland), Johnny Cash (Bill Scott Sheets), Carl Perkins (Skye Scott), and Jerry Lee Lewis (Brandyn Day). Directed by Hunter Foster, who was named 2018 'Director of the Year' by the Wall Street Journal, the show is based on the infamous picture of the four musicians gathered around a piano on December 4, 1956, at Sun Records in Memphis, Tennessee. According to the story, Carl Perkins was having a recording session with a then unknown Jerry Lee Lewis on piano. Elvis Presley stops in since he was in town with motives to convince Phillips to take the deal with RCA, and Johnny Cash was called in for a surprise renewal of his contract. Though labeled as a jukebox musical, it really is a play within a concert.....or a concert within a play, whichever way you want to look at it. I LOVED it! The cast was phenomenal. I want to see it again. It is a definite must-see show!
