Million Dollar Quartet

Confederation Centre: Homburg Theatre


Saturday, September 02, 2017, 01:30pm

In December 1956, a 20 year old Jerry Lee Lewis, 21 year old Elvis Presley, 24 year old Johnny Cash, and 24 year old Carl Perkins stepped into the legendary Sun Record Studios and under the direction of Sam Phillips created an evening of musicianship that, by today’s standards, would have taken months to arrange and negotiate.

“Imagine what it would have been like to be a ‘fly on the wall’ and experienced that evening first-hand,” says Director and Choreographer Tracey Flye. “The comradery, the competition, and the opportunity to get a private glimpse into the lives of these young men—out of the spotlight for a few precious hours and able to simply be themselves and revel in each other’s musical talents.”

That is what Million Dollar Quartet promises—a momentary glimpse into these four extraordinary lives, under ordinary circumstances. Four young musicians unaffected by their public persona for an evening and able to play for the pure joy of playing. “How lucky are we that producer and architect of the evening, Sam Phillips, had the foresight to make it all happen!?” says Flye.

The cast includes Greg Gale (Cash), Matthew Lawrence (Elvis), Jefferson McDonald (Jerry Lee), Ed Murphy (Perkins), Alicia Toner (Dyanne), and Stephen Guy-McGrath (Sam Phillips). Additional accompaniment is provided by Trevor Grant (Fluke, the drummer) and Evan Stewart (Brother Jay Perkins, bass).

Music director for Million Dollar Quartet is Bob Foster, with sets and costumes from Corey Sincennes, lighting by Michael Walton, and sound design by Peter McBoyle. The original concept and direction is by Floyd Mutrux, with the book by Colin Escott and Mutrux.
