LUFKIN, TX. Imagine Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Carl Perkins together. The year is 1956, when a twist of fate brings these legendary icons to the Sun Records storefront in Memphis, for the first and only time, to create the greatest rock ‘n’ roll jam session in history. That is exactly what happens in this blockbuster Broadway production coming to Lufkin for two performances in April. MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET will have a “whole lotta shakin’ going on” at the Temple Theater on the Angelina College campus Tuesday April 21 and Wednesday April 22, starting at 7:30 pm. Tickets for the Tony Award-Winning musical range from $35-$45 (Premium/Box $55). Angelina Arts Alliance is proud to bring MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET to Lufkin along with show sponsors Brookshire Brothers Charitable Foundation and Loving Auto Group. 2014-2015 Season sponsors are First Bank and Trust East Texas and Georgia Pacific.
“For fans that were lucky enough to see these legendary performers live, MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET is like reliving one of those iconic moments. For those that never saw these great performers – it is the closest you may ever come to experiencing Elvis or Johnny Cash live – in person,” stated Tracy Pinkerton, Arts Alliance Executive Director. “This National Tour has played to sold out theaters, and thrilled audiences coast to coast, so we are proud to bring a show of this quality to East Texas!” Tracy added. Audiences, when polled, said their one complaint was that they “could not sit down!” With a song list that includes timeless hits – “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Ring of Fire,” “Hound Dog,” Great Balls of Fire,” and more –sitting down may not be an option. At the end of this dynamic show you’ll be standing on your feet roaring for more!
