Million Dollar Quartet – Queen’s Theatre Review

Following  a sold out West End Season, Million Dollar Quartet comes to the Queen’s Theatre and is showing until Sat 30th September 2017. The show follows the story of how four stars, Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash and Carl Perkins came to together on 4th December 1956 for one of the greatest jam sessions ever.  This was all down to music mogul Sam Phillips, played by former Blue Peter presenter Peter Duncan.

Peter Duncan really holds the show together and he is a remarkable established actor and he really does transport you back to the 1950s and is indeed warm and engaging with his audience.  Other stand out performances include Rhys Whitfield who plays a young Elvis, who does a marvellous job at replicating Elvis’s jives and shakes, and of course his smooth voice. Watch out for Martin Kaye who plays Jerry Lee Lewis who has superb piano skills and is very endearing, and Katie Ray who plays Dyanne and gives a feminine touch to the musical and her vocals on ‘Fever’ are indeed mesmerising.

If you’re a fan of the swinging 50’s and love your Rock and Roll music, make sure you book tickets to see Million Dollar Quartetstarring Blue Peter legend Peter Duncan! Give the box office a call on: 01708  44 33 33 or visit:  http://www.queens-theatre.co.uk/
