Hollywood, Fla. (May 15, 2018) – The Tony Award-winning Broadway musical “Million Dollar Quartet” comes to Hard Rock Event Center at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Fla. on Wednesday, Aug. 15, at 8 p.m. Tickets go on sale Friday, May 18, at 10 a.m. Fans can access presale tickets beginning Thursday, May 17, at 10 a.m. through Seminole Hard Rock Hollywood’s Facebook and Twitter pages.
Inspired by an electrifying true event, “Million Dollar Quartet” tells the story of an auspicious twist of fate that brought together four young musicians – Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Elvis Presley. Sam Phillips, the undisputed “Father of Rock ‘n’ Roll,” who was responsible for launching the careers of each of these icons, gathered the four legendary singer/songwriters at the Sun Records studio in Memphis, Tenn. for the first and only time. The result was one of the greatest rock ‘n’ roll jam sessions in history.
“Million Dollar Quartet” brings that unbelievable musical moment to life with an irresistible tale of broken promises, secrets, betrayal, humor and celebration, complete with unforgettable performances of timeless hits such as “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Fever,” “That’s All Right,” “Sixteen Tons,” “I Walk the Line,” “Great Balls of Fire,” “Folsom Prison Blues,” “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On,” “Hound Dog” and more.
“Million Dollar Quartet” won a Tony Award for Best Performance by a Featured Actor in a Musical and received two additional Tony nominations, one for Best Musical and one for Best Book of a Musical (Colin Escott and Floyd Mutrux). The show received an Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Featured Actor in a Musical; a Drama Desk nomination for Outstanding Musical Revue; and three Drama League nominations including Distinguished Production of a Musical and Distinguished Performance. “Million Dollar Quartet” is produced by Gershwin Entertainment Corporation.
