Memorialising the famous jam session of 1956, where fate brought together legends Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins and newcomer Jerry Lee Lewis, Million Dollar Quartet is an energetic show which rattles through instantly recognisable hits from the golden age of rock n’roll at a lightning-fast rate.
Million Dollar Quartet offers up some of the finest cuts of vintage rockabilly and rock n roll procured from some of the most legendary names in the history of music.
In 1956 four young men on the brink of stardom had an impromptu jam session at the now legendary Sun Studios under the watchful eye of Sam Phillips, the man who created Rock’n’Roll.
MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET, the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical and West End hit, today reveals casting for the red-hot rock ‘n’ roll extravaganza which appears at Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall. The show plays a limited season starring Martin Kemp from Saturday 17 December 2016 to Monday 2 January 2017.
Carrie Hope Fletcher and Shaun Williamson join the cast of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang on tour.
This cast launching the tour has had some changes since leaving the Yorkshire Playhouse where the show was resident over Christmas. I believe they have had just three performances together and whilst there were a couple of times that this showed, along with slight technical issues with “Chitty” neither detracted from the enjoyment of the show.
The stage version of the iconic 1968 British film Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is not awful. Much-loved songs by the Sherman Brothers and the sensational sets coupled with stunning special effects make for an entertaining experience. Oh, and there is a flying car.
