Description

from Million Dollar Quartet
Welk Resort Theatre is proud to present an all-new production of MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET, based on the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical, inspired by the electrifying true story of the famed recording session where Sam Phillips, the "Father of Rock 'n' Roll" brought together icons Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins for one unforgettable night.

On December 4, 1956, Sam Phillips, owner of Sun Records in Memphis and the man who discovered and started their careers, brought together the four legends-to-be for the only time in their lives, for what has come to be known as one of the greatest rock jam sessions of all time.

Featuring the greatest rock 'n' roll, gospel, R&B and country hits from these music legends, including "Blue Suede Shoes," "Walk The Line," "Folsom Prison Blues," "Who Do You Love?," "Great Balls of Fire," "Hound Dog," and "Whole Lotta' Shakin' Goin' On," Million Dollar Quartet tells the story and captures the high energy spirit and rockin’ sounds of a unique moment when four of music’s most extraordinary talents, all in their creative prime, came together for one of the most memorable nights in music history.

"A Well-known Story Told Effectively"
August 2018
We had seen this show before, but were quite impressed with the production in Branson. The sound quality was very good - not too loud to cover the singing. The cast was quite good, although the Elvis Presley actor seemed to be the weak link in the group. All others were outstanding.

"EVERYONE in this show is fantastic"
March 2018
I would recommend this show and I would go back and see it again!! I would recommend for ages 10 and up we had a family sitting behind us with small children and a baby and the baby kept crying through the whole show and the small children couldn’t keep still. But hands down one of the best shows in Branson

"Like Being There...."
August 2016
This show was amazing, more like a version of the Broadway Play. The musicians were so talented, sounded like the original performers, had their actions down, they actually became who they were portraying. Sound and lighting were great, it would be a great family show for anyone who likes Rock & Roll. The 4 main characters were amazing, but equally amazing were they female singer, the "owner" of Sun Records, and the band. Being a bass player, I will tell you, the guy on the Upright is as amazing as anyone on stage. You need to see it if you are a fan of any of the 4!

"Awesome Music!"
July 2016
MDQ is well acted and the actors became their characters and all were great musicians. Great Music, even better history of the four as it provides as early glimpse into Sam Phillips' Sun Records.

Get ready for Elvis, Jerry Lee, Carl and Johnny!. This is the story of the only time they were all together and the music that these singers were famous for at the time. Thank heavens the tape was kept of that meeting. This is a very large theater and iit is very nice. Put this on your to do list. The music is terrific and the cast is wonderful.

We were among the first to see the Million Dollar Quartet when it first came to Branson. About five years later, we saw it again last night. Absolute perfection this time. It was Elvis, Carl, Johnny, Jerry Lee, and Sam reincarnated for one last hurrah, one final jam session, one closing show. It was their last show in Branson, and the played to a full house. What an excellent, entertaining, nostalgic farewell performance. Marilyn Evans was extraordinary in her appearance and voice. The audience was into the show big time. The cast was so into their characters that the people just kept on wanting more. Such a grand, wonderful, bitter/sweet captivating experience that actually said goodbye. I will miss them. The music was sheer perfection, the beat, the mix, the teamwork, the synergy of talent lifted everyone present into the realm of pure rock and roll. We traveled back in time. We weren't watching actors or musicians playing a gig; it was Jerry, Johnny, Carl, and Elvis come back to visit. marilyn added spice and wonderful talent. Sam could not have been better. What a perfect goodbye, what an excellent exit, what a fine remembrance of a worthy effort to memorialize some of the monuments ever etched in my revery. Thanks to all for a really nice last performance.
