'Million Dollar Quartet' to close on June 24 after 900 shows
UPI News Service, 05/25/2012
The musical "Million Dollar Quartet" is to close June 24 after 900 performances on Broadway and at New World Stages, the show's producers announced.
The New York production originally opened at the Nederlander Theatre April 11, 2010 and transferred to New World Stages July 28, 2011.
"On Dec. 4, 1956, an auspicious twist of fate brought Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Elvis Presley together," a synopsis of the show said.
"The place was Sun Records' storefront studio in Memphis. The man who made it happen was Sam Phillips, the 'Father of Rock 'n' Roll,' who discovered them all. The four young musicians united for the only time in their careers for an impromptu recording that has come to be known as one of the greatest rock jam sessions of all time."
