Million Dollar Quartet
The jukebox musical brings to life an impromptu jam session with all-time greats Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins, telling a tale of broken promises, secrets, betrayals and celebrations.
Cliff Bradshaw, an American author working on a novel in Berlin, encounters Sally Bowles, a talented cabaret performer, at the seedy Kit Kat Klub where she sings. When she is fired by the club’s owner, also her jealous boyfriend, she moves in with Cliff and the two fall in love. As the Nazis begin taking control of the German government, the atmosphere of the Kit Kat Klub and the lives of Cliff and Sally begin to change dramatically. For all the exuberant song and dance, the most powerful aspect of Cabaret remains the political wallop that it delivers.
