Million Dollar Quartet hits The Kentucky Center

Posted: Updated:

Million Dollar Quartet hits the Kentucky Center February 12 through the 17th. The Broadway musical is set on December 4, 1956, the day that Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Elvis Presley got together.

Sam Phillips, the "Father of Rock 'n' Roll," was responsible for launching the careers of each icon. He brought the four legendary musicians together at the Sun Records storefront studio in Memphis for the first and only time. The resulting evening became known as one of the greatest rock 'n' roll jam sessions in history.

Original Broadway cast member Robert Britton Lyons will play Carl Perkins, Martin Kaye takes on the role of Jerry Lee Lewis, David Elkins portrays Johnny Cash, and Cody Slaughter shakes his hips as Elvis Presley.

The international Tony® Award Winning musical comes to Louisville as part of the PNC Broadway in Louisville series.  

Ticket start at $25 and will be available at The Kentucky Center box office, TicketMaster outlets, by visiting www.KentuckyCenter.org, or by calling 502-584-7777.
