Join Us for This Thrilling Performance by the Best Supergroup of All Time
Broadway’s fascination with rock 'n' roll has endured unabated over the past few decades, beginning with Tommy and Jesus Christ Superstar and continuing more recently with musicals built around the sounds of the Four Seasons (Jersey Boys), Carole King (Beautiful), and Billy Joel (Movin’ Out). Not surprisingly, then, the Great White Way found some ideal fodder in the unexpected encounter that led to what many music historians consider the greatest, albeit shortest-lived, supergroup of all time.
Gathered under the auspices of the legendary producer and record label owner Sam Phillips, the so-called Million Dollar Quartet — Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, and Johnny Cash — converged at the legendary Sun Studios nearly 60 years ago and engaged in an impromptu jam that covered individual hits, country songs, gospel numbers, and popular standards of the day.
Many decades later, Broadway did what it's inclined to do: take a magical moment and re-create it for the stage. Here again the formula succeeds, bringing Million Dollar Quartet both a Tony Award and a familiarity factor associated with a soundtrack of songs that became cornerstones of rock 'n' roll: “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Great Balls of Fire,” “I Walk the Line,” “Fever,” and “Hound Dog.” It suffices to say this musical really does rock. Million Dollar Quartet plays at Actors’ Playhouse at the Miracle Theatre (280 Miracle Mile, Coral Gables) this Wednesday through January 1, 2017, with performances Wednesday through Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 3 p.m.
The Palms at Sawgrass Mills Apartments, the premier apartments in Sunrise, Florida, is inviting friends and neighbors to attend this unforgettable event!
