WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Internationally known author, music historian, and Grammy Award-winning producer Colin Escott (The Complete Hank Williams) and Second City graduate and acclaimed film writer, director, and producer Floyd Mutrux (Scarecrow, winner of "Best Film" at Cannes, American Me, Mulholland Falls, among others), with musical direction by Chuck Mead of the multiple Grammy-nominated country band BR549, have joined together to tell the amazing true story of the Million Dollar Quartet. On December 4, 1956 at Sun Studios in Memphis, a twist of fate brought Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis Presley, and Johnny Cash together for one night of music that made history. These four legends-to-be and the "Father of Rock-n-Roll," Sam Phillips, who discovered them all, united for an impromptu recording session that would be one for the ages. Originally presented in Village Theatre's 2006 Festival of New Musicals, Million Dollar Quartet captures the spirit and music of that one fateful night, including chart-topping rock-n-roll and gospel classics of the '50s. September 19 - October 28: Francis J. Gaudette Theatre 303 Front Street North Issaquah, WA 98027 November 2 - 18 Everett Performing Arts Center 2710 Wetmore Avenue Everett, WA 98201
