Owner description: Ready to rock out like it's 1956 all over again? A nationwide touring hit, Tony(R) Award-winning musical "Million Dollar Quartet" takes audiences back to December 4, 1956, when an extraordinary twist of fate brought Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash and Carl Perkins together in what became one of the most memorable nights in music. Based around that historical event, the musical recounts how the legends ended up in the same room at Sun Records in Memphis for one of the greatest impromptu rock 'n' roll jam sessions in history. It brings to light the extraordinary story of broken promises, secrets, and the once-in-a-lifetime celebration of four friends that is both poignant and heartwarming. Featuring talented, charismatic actors and singers, relive the era with the show's incredible score of rock 'n' roll, gospel, R&B and country hits. Showcased hit songs include everything from "Blue Suede Shoes," and "Walk the Line" to "Ghost Riders"," "Sixteen Tons," "Great Balls of Fire," "Folsom Prison Blues," "Fever," "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On," "Hound Dog," and more.

The show is an imagining of a night when Elvis, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins got together in Sun Studios for the first and only time. Foot stompin' and rockin' good time.

Enjoyed hearing songs from the past. Actors did a great job of resembling characters but not imitating them.

The four male leads and the single female lead were all AMAZING. Great performers, great voices, etc. The stand out was Jerry Lee Lewis--great voice, amazing piano playing, great performance. The guy who played Carl Perkins was also great. Amazing singer and guitar player. Keep in mind that this is a *Broadway show*, not really a "Vegas show" or impersonator show. If you are looking for that, go see Legends or something similar. I thought the dialogue was a bit slow and that when they weren't singing the energy lagged. This is no fault of the actors, but more the show. The musical numbers and finale/encores are the best parts of the show, so for that it is worth it. I will say I enjoyed Jersey Boys more. I LOVED the MDQ actors and mean them no disrespect by saying that, but as far as the "Vegas Show Experience," I would steer folks towards Jersey Boys for that reason only. Also, it seemed a bit short, and I was surprised it was already over. But a good length if you're not looking for a long show.

My other annoyance was the theater. Your choices are booths with other people (weird!) or tables with other people (cramped, no table service). They do have regular theater seating in the front several rows, but those were about $30 or $40 more. The house was only about half-full on a Thursday 8pm show. Seems that ticket sales might be lagging. They should offer to allow people to move to the front of the theater if there are empty seats so that it doesn't seem so empty. I'm sure the performers would like that too.

My wife is a huge country music fan, she chose this show on a birthday trip. For the entire 90 minutes you had a front row seat to history. The young men playing the principals are dead ringers visually and musically and the interaction between the leads displayed an weary tone as they seemed to know they were in the middle of a vortex.

My thoughts are similar to Fenwick's below. I'm from that era and really wanted to love the show but it just does not execute as well as it should. The typical crowd for this show is around 70 and they just don't give any energy. The cast does a credible job but it comes off like "Legends in Concert" with a story, only the vocals are not as good as Legends. Without the Jerry Lee Lewis actor, the show would have rated poor. He was the only one generating a pulse in the showroom. I won't pay to see it again but it was an OK evening.
