The musical is set on Dec. 4, 1956, when an extraordinary twist of fate brought Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Elvis Presley together for what would be one of the greatest jam sessions ever. The four legends gathered at the Sun Record recording studio in Memphis, Tenn., where they’d launched their careers. Word soon leaked out of an impromptu jam session, and a newspaperman wrote, “This quartet could sell a million.”
Soon, they were dubbed the “Million Dollar Quartet.” This was their only performance, a cultural flashpoint that caught rock ‘n’ roll at the moment of creation. The production includes songs like “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Fever,” “Walk the Line,” “Who Do You Love?” “Great Balls of Fire,” “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On” and “Hound Dog.”
Tickets cost from $44 to $69 and include a buffet dinner. A show schedule is listed at www.beefandboards.com, and reservations can be arranged by calling 307-872-9664.
