Back by popular demand following huge success on Broadway and the West End, the Tony Award winning musical Million Dollar Quartet comes to Mayflower Theatre, Southampton, from 10 – 14 March 2020. 

This worldwide smash hit musical – inspired by the famous recording session that brought together rock ‘n’ roll icons Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins for the first and only time – will make for one unforgettable night.

On December 4, 1956, history was made when these four star musicians gathered at Sun Records in Memphis, the studios of legendary record producer Sam Phillips, for what would be one of the greatest jam sessions of all time. 

This poignant musical features a score of more than 24 legendary rock hits including Blue Suede Shoes, Great Balls of Fire, Walk the Line and Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On and following rave reviews for his performance in the musical’s 2017 UK tour, the Olivier Award nominee and former Blue Peter presenter, Peter Duncan, returns to the stage.

Tickets for Million Dollar Quartet are on sale now from Mayflower Theatre, telephone: 02380 711811 or online at mayflower.org.uk.
