Million Dollar Quartet opened on Broadway in 2010, earning two Tony nominations for Best Musical and Best Book of a Musical by Colin Escott and Floyd Mutrux.

The score includes 1950s rock hits such as “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Great Balls of Fire,” “Walk the Line,” “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On,” “Folsom Prison Blues,” and more.
The Paper Mill cast includes James Barry as Carl Perkins, Jason Loughlin as Sam Phillips, Scott Moreau as Johnny Cash, Jake Rowley as Elvis Presley, David Sonneborn as Fluke, Bligh Voth as Dyanne, Sam Weber as Brother Jay, and Nat Zegree as Jerry Lee Lewis.
