Lance Guest to Star in Village Theatre's Million Dollar Quartet
Incorporating rock-n-roll and gospel classics from the '50s, Million Dollar Quartet recounts a magical night in Memphis during 1956 when musical legends Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Elvis Presley gathered for an impromptu recording session. The show features a book by Grammy Award-winning producer Colin Escott and Second City graduate Floyd Mutrux, with musical arrangements by Chuck Mead. Mutrux and Matt Walker direct.
Guest, who made a name for himself in the 1984 science fiction movie The Last Starfighter, will reprise the role of Johnny Cash, the same part he portrayed in a 2006 reading of the play. His theater credits include Look Homeward Angel, The Weather Outside, and Baby with the Bathwater.
Additional cast members include Levi Kreis as Jerry Lee Lewis, Rob Lyons as Carl Perkins, Dane Stokinger as Elvis Presley, Matt Wolfe as Sam Phillips, and Jessica Skerritt as Elvis' showgirl girlfriend, Dyanne.
