“Million Dollar Quartet,” the Broadway show that follows a night, December 4, 1956, during a jam session at the Sun Record Studios, in Memphis, Tennessee, with Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Johnny Cash. Perkins had come into the studios, accompanied by his brothers Clayton and Jay and a drummer by the name of W.S. Holland to record some new material. Sam Phillips, the owner of Sun Records, wanted to spice up the instrumentation brought in Jerry Lee Lewis to play piano on the session. Conversations about the music business are intertwined with the music. The person portraying Jerry Lee Lewis did an outstanding job. We had seen this show at the New Dinner Theatre in KC so we already knew the story line and music.
