The Chicago production of Million Dollar Quartet has announced that it is now playing at the Apollo Theater through May 30, 2011. The new block of tickets for the production go on sale October 1.

The musical is inspired by the December 4, 1956 recording session that brought together Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, and Elvis Presley. It is co-authored by Floyd Mutrux and Colin Escott, and co-directed by Eric Schaeffer and Mutrux, with musical direction by Chuck Mead. The show features a treasure trove of the greatest rock, rockabilly, gospel, R&B and country standards of the 1950s, including "Blue Suede Shoes," "Fever," "Sixteen Tons," "Who Do You Love?," "Great Balls of Fire," "Ghost Riders in the Sky," and "Whole Lotta' Shakin' Goin' On."

The Chicago company currently features Emmy Award winner actor David Lago (Elvis Presley), Lance Lipinsky (Jerry Lee Lewis), Gabe Bowling (Carl Perkins), Sean Sullivan (Johnny Cash), Tim Decker (Sam Phillips), Kelly Lamont (Dyanne), Billy Shaffer (Fluke/Drummer) and Chuck Zayas (Jay Perkins/Bass).

The musical is currently also performing at Broadway's Nederlander Theatre, starring the original Chicago leads.
