MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET TOUR

tour of million dollar quartetFollowing its success in the West End, Las Vegas and on Broadway, Tony Award winning Broadway musical Million Dollar Quartet is to go on a new UK tour opening in Southampton next March. Casting news so far is that Olivier Award nominee and former Blue Peter presenter Peter Duncan will return to play the father of rock 'n' roll Sam Phillips after his performance in the musical's 2017 UK tour. He will be joined by Ross Williams/ Elvis Presley, Martin Kaye/Jerry Lee Lewis, Robbie Durham/Johnny Cash, Ashley Carruthers/Jerry Lee Lewis, Katie Ray/Dyanne and Matt Wycliffe/Carl Perkins/Jerry Lee Lewis.

 This worldwide smash-hit musical is inspired by the famous recording session that brought together rock 'n' roll icons Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins for the first and only time.

On December 4, 1956, these four star musicians gathered at Sun Records in Memphis, the studios of legendary record producer Sam Phillips, for what would be one of the greatest jam sessions ever. Written by Colin Escott and Floyd Mutrux, Million Dollar Quartet is directed by Olivier-nominated Ian Talbot and includes design by David Farley, lighting by David Howe and sound by Ben Harrison. It brings that legendary night to life, featuring a score of rock hits including Blue Suede Shoes, Fever, That's All Right, Sixteen Tons, Great Balls of Fire, Walk the Line, Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On, Who Do You Love?, Matchbox, Folsom Prison Blues, Hound Dog and many more.
