The New Yorker’s John Lahr says MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET “kicks ass”

New Yorker Magazine

By John Lahr

This new jukebox musical, with a book by Colin Escott and Floyd Mutrux, kicks ass. Four good actors who can really play their instruments sing twenty-three rock-and-roll hits in telling the true story of Sam Phillips’ 1956 Sun Records session in which Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash and Carl Perkins all jammed. Lance Guest, Levi Kreis, Eddie Clendening and Robert Britton Lyons play the rockers. A special shout-out to Kreis, who brings the house down playing “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On” leaning backward over his upright piano. Good set. Tight band. Crisp direction by Eric Schaeffer. A hard-rockin’ time guaranteed by this management.
