Just got back from a production of "The Million Dollar Quartet" ,  the story of the winter evening in 1956 when Sam Phillips at Sun Studio had Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins in the studio at the same time.   Fabulous singers/actors brought the songs to life and the story woven around the music was pretty damn interesting too.   Great show !

Jack, sounds like you had a fun time. Other than the guy playing Jerry Lee, you'd have to tell me who was who among the other three actors.
Wonder if the actor playing Jerry Lee knew he had blond, not red, hair?

We saw Million Dollar Quartet a couple years ago and it was really good.

Joe,  the man in black was Johnny Cash,   in white was Elvis,  Carl Perkins was the other one.    The Elvis actor was the weakest of the group ,  but he was still pretty good, he had the moves, just a weaker voice.   Most of them have been in the Broadway tour of the show.

Jerry Lee Lewis was played for laughs,  heavy accent, silly clothes,  irreverent comments, etc.    That provided some variety to the show.   But his piano playing was the best part of the show .. he had all the moves down pat.

Johnny Cash was there but he never sang a lick that day.  He was literally out to lunch at the time.
