Rock legends headed to Broadway

Elvis, Johnny Cash featured in 'Million Dollar' musical

Elvis, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins are coming to Broadway, with the tuner “Million Dollar Quartet” headed to Gotham for a planned spring run.

“Million Dollar” has been playing to strong response in Chicago since it opened there in October.

Show centers on the real-life 1956 gathering of rock-n-roll legends Presley, Cash, Lewis and Perkins, brought together for an informal jam session by influential record producer Sam Phillips at Sun Records in Memphis. Score for the musical includes period chart-toppers such as “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Fever,” “Great Balls of Fire,” “I Walk the Line” and “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On.”

Production looks poised to tap the same demo of oldies-loving baby boomers that have helped turn “Jersey Boys,” the bio-tuner about the Four Seasons, into one of the Rialto’s top earners.

Helmed by Eric Schaeffer (“Glory Days,” “Putting it Together”), “Million Dollar” has a book co-penned by writer-producer Floyd Mutrux (“Mulholland Falls,” “Dick Tracy”) and music historian Colin Escott.

Gotham incarnation is produced by Relevant Theatricals, John Cossette Prods., Northern Lights Inc., Broadway Across America and James L. Nederlander.

Exact Main Stem dates and casting remain to be announced.
