Goodness gracious, great balls of fire! Four legends, one night and a whole lot of rock ‘n’ roll! Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Elvis Presley have one of the greatest jam sessions of all time in the TONY AWARD WINNING musical “Million Dollar Quartet,” opening at the Hippodrome Theatre Friday, May 31 at 8 p.m.
Inspired by a true event, these four iconic musicians play their hearts out live on stage as they weave a tale filled with broken promises, deception, betrayal and passion.
