Tonight: ‘Million Dollar Quartet’


It must have been quite the moment: Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins all in the same recording studio. The day was Dec. 4, 1956 in the Sun Records Studios in Memphis. The result: an album titled “Million Dollar Quartet.”

The Broadway musical with the same title opened in New York in 2010 and closed in 2011. Now the national tour is reaching Fresno, with two performances starting tonight at the Saroyan Theatre.

For Friday’s 7 section, I chatted in an interview with John Countryman, who plays Jerry Lee Lewis in the production. He tells me that if you want to say hi after the show, he usually hangs out with his wife in the theater lobby, where she sells tour merchandise.
