Photo Flash: First Look at MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET, Bowing Tonight in Toronto

Drayton Entertainment brings their popular production of the world-wide smash-hit musical MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET to Toronto. Written by Colin Escott and Floyd Mutrux, the Drayton Entertainment production is directed by Alex Mustakas, the company's artistic director. MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET will play at Toronto's Panasonic Theatre tonight, December 12, 2017, through January 7, 2018. Media night is December 13 at 8PM. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET is inspired by the famed recording session 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.

MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET brings that legendary night to life, featuring a score of over 20 classic 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.

MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET opened on Broadway in 2010 followed by productions in Las Vegas, London's West End, and National Tours in the US and UK.

Mustakas brought together the same creative team as he had in Calgary - Music Director Konrad Pluta, Set Designer Laurin Kelsey, Costume Designer Rachel Berchtold, and Lighting Designer Jeff Johnston Collins - to produce this production, which played four of Drayton Entertainment's seven venues across southwestern Ontario this summer - the Drayton Festival Theatre in Drayton, the Dunfield Theatre Cambridge in Cambridge, the Huron Country Playhouse in Grand Bend, and the King's Wharf Theatre in Penetanguishene. The Panasonic engagement will be the production's Toronto debut.

Tickets are available by visiting mirvish.com, or by calling TicketKing at 416-872-1212 or 1-800-461-3333.
