MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET

The music of Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins & Jerry Lee Lewis

by Colin Escott & Floyd Mutrux

directed by Kerry Meads

musical direction by Ben Van Diepen

From James Hebert’s review in the San Diego Union-Tribune:

“All roads led to Memphis on Dec. 4, 1956, when a fearsome foursome of rock royalty-to-be — Elvis, Lewis, Carl Perkins and Johnny Cash — converged on Sam Phillips’ Sun Records studio to engage in a jam session for the ages.

To commemorate that occasion, the Coronado-based Lamb’s Players’ Theatre has taken its own road trip, heading up the highway to stage a revival of the 2010 Broadway musical at the AVO Theatre in Vista. And great balls of fire, does Lamb’s make it worth the journey.

MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET visited the San Diego Civic Theatre six years ago in a solid Broadway touring production. This one’s better. It feels more raw, more spontaneous, and more true to the spirit of a bunch of rock rebels sparking off the friction and fervor between them to make one passionate racket.”

“CRITIC’S CHOICE!”

James Hebert, San Diego Union-Tribune

“best bet!”
