Kentucky Center production dramatizes the early years of Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash.
Put Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins in the same room and some lip-curling, hip-shaking, good-rythmed rockabilly tunes are bound to bust out.
See for yourself.
Kentucky Center's Whitney Hall in Louisville this month will host the return of the Tony-award winning Broadway production "Million Dollar Quartet," which dramatizes the musical collaboration between the four legends in their early years.
The shows will run from Tuesday, Feb. 12 to Sunday, Feb. 17.
There will be one performance on weekdays and two each on Saturday and Saturday. Showtimes are 7:30 p.m. for Feb. 12-14; 8 p.m. for Feb. 15; 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. for Feb. 16; and 1 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. for Feb. 17. Tickets for all ages start at $25.
The show tweaks a real story involving all four men, who recorded an impromptu jam session together on Dec. 4, 1956, in Sun Records Studio in Memphis Tenn., with producer and "Father of Rock n' Roll," Sam Phillips. The recording, which was unheard for years, later became known as the "Million Dollar Quartet."
While the recording features many rough cuts, the Broadway show is no jam session.
Patrons can expect hits such as "Blue Suede Shoes," "Fever," "That's All Right," "Sixteen Tons," "Great Balls of Fire," "I Walk the Line," "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On," "Who Do You Love?," "Matchbox," "Folsom Prison Blues," "Hound Dog" and more.
The Louisville cast for the show includes Cody Slaughter, who plays Elvis, Martin Kaye, who plays Jerry Lee Lewis, Derek Keeling, who plays Johnny Cash, Lee Ferris, who plays Carl Perkins, and Christopher Ryan Grant, who plays Sam Phillips.
Tickets are available by calling the Kentucky Center Box Office at 1-800-775-7777 or online at www.kentuckycenter.org.
