Fulton Theatre’s Million Dollar Quartet – A Review
Live music is an intoxicating event. Once you’re hooked, you’re addicted for life. You will continually look for exciting new bands or stalk a performer’s tour hoping you can catch a show. You’ll imagine a dream concert of your favorite musicians coming together for one show just for you.
Fulton Theatre’s Million Dollar Quartet is that concert. Sam Phillips recounts the evening of December 4, 1956 at Sun Records when Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, and Jerry Lee Lewis come together for one of the greatest recorded jam sessions in Rock and Roll history.
Brandyn Day (Jerry Lee Lewis), James Barry (Carl Perkins), Scott Moreau (Johnny Cash), and Ari McKay Wilford (Elvis Presley) are exceptional. They embody their legends perfectly. Every note sung and mannerism mimicked is spot on. I truly felt like I was attending the greatest concert imaginable.
Jason Loughlin brings deep emotion to the show as Sam Phillips. He presents the history of Sun Records and his artists emphatically. As an audience member, you clearly see his devotion and love for music and his artists.
You may think that a favorite song would in turn be my favorite part of the show, but it is not. There is a very heart felt moment that links the show with the real event. You will know it when you see it. It gave me goosebumps.
If you love music, you need to see Fulton Theatre’s Million Dollar Quartet. It will bring all of your dreams seeing Rock and Roll legends live come true. Million Dollar Quartet is performing now through May 20th. For tickets and show information visit www.thefulton.org or call the box office at 717-397-7425.
