The Million Dollar Quartet Pays Homage to the Most Iconic Night in Rock and Roll History

Are you in deep need of something fulfilling to your love for theatre? “Million Dollar Quartet” is the new smash-hit musical 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. You can catch it all at Florida Repertory Theatre on Wednesday, April 3 at 7 p.m.

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. The recording session retains its historical significance as a landmark event in the age of Rock n’ Roll, and a milestone for the genre in the ever-changing world of the 20th century popular culture and mass media.

In the decades that ensued, The Million Dollar Quartet in 1956 has often been referred to as the “Mount Rushmore of Rock n’ Roll.” “Million Dollar Quartet” brings that legendary night to life, featuring a score of rock hits including “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Fever,” and “Sixteen Tons” and more. It captures the contagious spirit, freewheeling excitement, and thrilling sounds of the once-in-a-life-time event.

This thrilling musical brings you inside the recording studio with four major talents who came together as a red-hot rock ‘n’ roll band for one unforgettable night. Tickets can be purchased online at https://tickets.floridarep.org or at the Florida Rep Box Office.
