Million Dollar Quartet is Coming to Broadway

Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash as seen above comprise the Million Dollar Quartet. On December 4, 1956 those four united at Sun Records storefront studio in Memphis for an impromptu jam session. A musical based on this recording session has been playing in Chicago for about a year.

Sometimes it pays to listen to radio commercials. On Monday night I heard Bob Shannon on WCBS-FM talk about the opening of this show on Broadway in April. Previews will begin on March 13. In the commercial Bob said if you go to Ticketmaster this Friday December 4th, the anniversary of this famous session, tickets may be bought for $19.56. It is certainly a bargain to go to a Broadway musical at that price. It would be perfect for us to go at the end of March for Lee's birthday since he is NYC's biggest Johnny Cash fan. He likes the other three as well. You may follow Million Dollar Quartet News on Twitter @milliondquartet.
