On Wednesday, January 26, Broadway veteran and Today show co-host Kathie Lee Gifford joined the Broadway cast of the musical Million Dollar Quartet for a special encore performance. The performance aired during the fourth hour (10am-11am) of NBC's Today Show on Thursday January 27.

The production is directed by Eric Schaeffer. The show was inspired by the famed 1956 recording session that brought together Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, and Elvis Presley -- along with Sam Phillips, founder of Sun Records.

The cast currently features Eddie Clendening (Elvis Presley), Lance Guest (Johnny Cash), Levi Kreiss (Jerry Lee Lewis), Jared Mason (Carl Perkins), James Moye (Sam Phillips), and Elizabeth Stanley (Dyanna).
