For those of us that miss fabulous entertainment and the excitement of attending a live stage performance in Westchester, here is some wonderful news! The Chappaqua Performing Arts Center as a terrific line up of shows coming to their venue and the first one starts April 21 and runs through May 22. Million Dollar Quartet, produced by Gershwin Entertainment, was inspired by Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins. The storyline describes that on December 4, 1956, an auspicious twist of fate brought together four young musicians, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, and Elvis Presley. Sam Phillips, the undisputed “Father of Rock ‘n’ Roll” who was responsible for launching the careers of each of these icons, gathered the four legendary singer/songwriters at the Sun Records studio in Memphis for the first and only time. The result? One of the greatest rock ‘n’ roll jam sessions in history. Million Dollar Quartet brings that unbelievable musical moment to life with an irresistible tale of broken promises, secrets, betrayal, humor, celebration, unforgettable performances of such timeless and enduring hits as “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Fever,” “That’s All Right,” “Sixteen Tons,” “I Walk the Line,” “Great Balls of Fire,” “Folsom Prison Blues,” “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On,” “Hound Dog,” and more. Million Dollar Quartet won a Tony® Award for Best Performance by a Featured Actor in a Musical and received two Tony nominations, one for Best Musical and one for Best Book of a Musical (Colin Escott and Floyd Mutrux). It was written by Colin Escott and Floyd Mutrux. The show is directed by Tim Seib with musical direction by Trevor Dorner and produced by Gershwin Entertainment. Lighting Design by Kirk Bookman, set design by Adam Koch and costume design by Jeffrey Meek.
