"Based on an actual event, Million Dollar Quartet documents one famous night in the lives of Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, and Elvis Presley. Phoenix Theatre's area premiere of this upbeat jukebox musical features two dozen hit songs and four talented musicians who expertly embody these iconic rock and country legends. The end result is a crowd-pleasing, toe-tapping, thrilling and energetic fact-based musical journey to the past..." -Gil Benbrook, Talkin' Broadway (click here to read the complete review)

"...If you’re a rock ‘n roll fan, you’ll have the time of your life. And even if you only have a passing interest, it will still be one of the most fun nights at the theatre you’ll get to experience. Strap yourselves in; under Scott Weinstein’s Phoenix Theatre directorial debut, Million Dollar Quartet is a musical theatre thrill ride...." -David Appleford, Valley Screen and Stage (click here to read the complete review)

"Hearing Carl Perkins’ “Blue Suede Shoes,” Johnny Cash’s “Sixteen Tons,” Elvis Presley’s “Party,” and Jerry Lee Lewis’ “Great Balls of Fire” in a musical comedy is not traditional but in “Million Dollar Quartet” those rock ‘n’ roll legends are heard with more than 20 of their pop tune hits as this rollicking show pays a glorious tribute to these four singers...Phoenix Theatre mounts the first local production of this homage with great flourish because outstanding musical performers portray the four unique talents with realistic honesty....." --Chris Curcio, KBAQ (click here to read the complete review)
