Million Dollar Quartet lands in Boston
Imagine putting together a supergroup of all your favorite musicians. Today you might invite Justin Timberlake, Taylor Swift and Lady Gaga, but 60 years ago? Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins would have been on everyone’s wish list. And when the foursome actually did get together for a one-night recording session in Memphis, it was legendary—so much so that they based a musical on the meeting. The Tony Award-winning Million Dollar Quartet takes audiences inside the studio with a score of well-known songs like “Walk the Line,” “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Great Balls of Fire” and “Hound Dog.” The show stops in Boston’s Colonial Theatre (106 Boylston St.) October 8-20 as part of the Broadway in Boston Series.
