The prime asset of 'Million Dollar Quartet,' is the explosive vitality of the music making, the riotous joy, beauty and sadness of life in songs that shoot straight for the soul.

Charles Isherwood, New York Times

Why See Million Dollar Quartet?

On December 4, 1956, an auspicious twist of fate brought together Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Elvis Presley. The place was Sun Records’ storefront studio in Memphis.

The man who made it happen was the “Father of Rock-n-Roll,” Sam Phillips, who discovered them all.

The four legends-to-be united for the only time in their careers for an impromptu recording session that embodied the birth of rock ‘n’ roll and has come to be known as one of the greatest rock jam sessions of all time.

Million Dollar Quartet captures the infectious spirit, freewheeling excitement and thrilling sounds of a singular moment when four of popular music’s most extraordinary talents, all in their creative prime, came together for a night that would raise the roof.
