Marcus welcomes "Million Dollar Quartet"

Tickets for the national tour of the Broadway musical "Million Dollar Quartet" go on sale Sunday, Sept. 18 at noon. The show runs Nov. 15-20 at the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts.

"Million Dollar Quartet" is set on Dec. 4, 1956, when an auspicious twist of fate brought Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Elvis Presley together. Sam Phillips, the "Father of Rock 'n' Roll" who was responsible for launching the careers of each icon, brought the four legendary musicians together at the Sun Records storefront studio in Memphis for the first and only time. The resulting evening became known as one of the greatest rock 'n' roll jam sessions in history.

The show includes classic early rock and roll hits like "Blue Suede Shoes," "Fever," "Sixteen Tons," "Who Do You Love?," "Great Balls of Fire," "Matchbox," "Folsom Prison Blues," "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On," "Hound Dog" and more.

Ticket prices range from $25 to $78 and will be available at the Marcus Center box office, all Ticketmaster outlets, by visiting MarcusCenter.org or by calling (414) 273-7206. Group orders of 10 or more may be placed by calling (414) 273-7121, ext. 210.
