Director's Note

“Oh there’s no place like home for the holidays…”

For me, Million Dollar Quartet has always been a story about family. That Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis all found themselves coming up together under the roof and guidance of Sam Phillips at Sun Records is integral to all their stories. But the four will be forever linked not only by the fateful night they spent together at 706 Union Avenue in Memphis, Tennessee on December 4th, 1956, but also by their shared journey from poverty to stardom and all the highs and lows in between - a brotherhood they all deeply understood and recognized in each other.

In creating this holiday reimagining of Million Dollar Quartet, we asked ourselves what more could we say that the original did not. The holidays, which for many are a time of great joy, are also a time when the world pauses for a moment and we have the opportunity to reflect on where we are, where we’ve been and where we’re going. This evening spent at Sun Records is no different. Families gather, traditions are formed, grievances are aired, songs are sung, and memories are sown. And when the holidays are over, we go our separate ways, hopefully with a perspective that we didn’t have before.

Million Dollar Quartet Christmas couldn’t have happened without the wonderful family of collaborators who came together and poured their hearts and talents into bringing this show to life. No matter how you celebrate, I hope this new musical brings you a fraction of the joy that it brought us to create it.

— Scott Weinstein, Director
