SAY HELLO TO THE CAST OF MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET, LANCE GUEST

SAY HELLO TO THE CAST OF MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET

LANCE GUEST

“gracefully plays Johnny Cash, who is pained at having to break bad news 

to Sam Phillips, the man who jump-started his career.”

The New York Times

[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pedX_HYurGo]


ACTOR: Lance Guest

ROLE: Guest plays Johnny Cash in MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET. Johnny Cash has been called “one of the most influential musicians of the 20th Century. His signature songs include “I Walk the Line,” “Folsom Prison Blues,” “Ring of Fire,” “Get Rhythm” and “Man in Black.” 

In MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET, Cash is wrestling with leaving Sun Records for another record label.

CREDITS: Moviegoers will recognize Guest from his film and television credits including The Last Starfighter, Halloween II, “House,” and “Jericho.” Guest played guitar and banjo with the touring satirical quartet The Foreman. Guest has been associated with MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET since its very first production. 

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.
