The Tony-winning rock ‘n’ roll tribute "Million Dollar Quartet" is being presented by Great Lakes Theater, Cleveland’s Classic Company, this month at Playhouse Square's Hanna Theatre in downtown Cleveland. Million Dollar Quartet chronicles the night of Dec. 4, 1956, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Elvis Presley fatefully found themselves together in a Memphis recording studio. The historic rock ‘n’ roll jam session that resulted was electrifying. Step back in time to experience this irresistible tale of broken promises, secrets and celebrations — which boasts powerhouse performances and an incredible score of rock ‘n’ roll, R&B and country hits, including “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Fever,” “Walk the Line,” “Great Balls of Fire,” “Folsom Prison Blues,” “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On,” “Hound Dog” and more. The production, which features a number of Broadway actors, runs through May 26. Tickets are available by calling 216-241-6000, by ordering online at www.greatlakestheater.org or by visiting the Playhouse Square Ticket Office.
