Million Dollar Quartet is one of our favorites here at ChiIL Mama. It's a high energy, fun multigenerational show you can feel great about taking your parents and/or kids to. I took the kids and they even got to go back stage and meet the actors! Highly recommended. Click here to check out our past review.


ChiIL Mama's kids, Dugan & Sage hangin' back stage with the stars of Million Dollar Quartet--seriously talented performers who sing, play music, get wild on stage, act, and rock some of the best music of the 50's that still has staying power today.

On December 4, 1956, an auspicious twist of fate brought Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Elvis Presley together. The place was Sun Records’ storefront studio in Memphis.  The man who made it happen was Sam Phillips, the “Father of Rock ’n’ Roll,” who discovered them all. The four legends-to-be united for the only time in their careers for an impromptu recording that has come to be known as one of the greatest rock jam sessions of all time. 

Featuring a treasure trove of the greatest rock ’n’ roll, gospel, R&B and country hits from these music legends, including “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Fever,” “Sixteen Tons,” “Who Do You Love?,” “Great Balls of Fire,” “I Walk The Line,” “Hound Dog” and “Whole Lotta’ Shakin’ Goin’ On,” Million Dollar Quartet captures the infectious spirit, freewheeling excitement and thrilling sounds of a singular moment when four of the music industry’s most extraordinary talents, all in their creative prime, came together for one of the most memorable nights in music history. 

Million Dollar Quartet has extended performances through summer 2015, with cast members Brandon Bennett (Elvis Presley), Shaun Whitley (Carl Perkins), Lance Lipinsky (Jerry Lee Lewis), Adam Lee (Johnny Cash), Jason Bradley (Sam Phillips), Marc Edelstein (Jay Perkins/Bass player), Marty Kondziolka (Fluke/Drummer) and Kelly Lamont (Dyanne).

The Tony Award-winning musical inspired by the famed 1956 recording session that brought together legendary rock ‘n’ roll icons Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Elvis Presley, celebrates its long run in Chicago, a Tony Award-winning New York run, a long-running London production, a current production in Las Vegas, and a national tour that kicked-off in October 2011.
