QUOTES: “Lance Guest is remarkable as Johnny Cash.”

  • Chicago Tribune

“Johnny Cash, gracefully played by Lance Guest, is the courtly country gentleman, pained at having to break bad news to Sam Phillips, the man who jump-started his career.”

  • The New York Times

MORE: MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET is the new musical inspired by the night an auspicious twist of fate brought Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, and Elvis Presley together. The place was Sun Records’ storefront studio in Memphis. The man who made it happen was Sam Phillips, the “Father of Rock and Roll,” who discovered them all. The four legends-to-be 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. 

Performances for MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET begin Saturday, March 13 for a Sunday, April 11 opening at the Nederlander Theatre (208 West 41st Street).

This musical, MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET, is not affiliated with, or authorized by, Sun Records, Sam Phillips, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins or any of their successors in interest and no such affiliation or authorization should be inferred.
