Legendary singer Jerry Lee Lewis joined the cast of the musical Million Dollar Quartet, at the Nederlander Theatre for a special encore performance on Friday, September 10. The production is directed by Eric Schaeffer.

The show was inspired by the famed 1956 recording session that brought together Lewis, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, and Elvis Presley -- along with Sam Phillips, founder of Sun Records. Levi Kreis, who plays Lewis, won the 2010 Tony Award for Best Featured Actor in a Musical for his performance.

The cast also features Eddie Clendening (Elvis Presley), Lance Guest (Johnny Cash), Robert Britton Lyons (Carl Perkins), Hunter Foster (Sam Phillips), and Elizabeth Stanley (Dyanna).

Lewis is best known for such hit songs as "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On" and "Great Balls of Fire." His new album, Mean Old Man was released on September 7, and a special limited edition of the CD featuring a duet with Kreis ison sale at the Nederlander Theatre.
