Million Dollar Quartet

The husband and I went out on a date Friday night - I think our third since Nugget was born.  We were given tickets to see Million Dollar Quartet at the Kennedy Center.

In December 1956, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins met at Sun Records in Memphis for what has to be the greatest jam session of all time.  Million Dollar Quartet tells the story of that night and features so many great songs - Blue Suede Shoes, Folsom Prison Blues, Great Balls of Fire and Sixteen Tons just for starters.  

If you get a chance to see this show, don't miss it.  It's on a national tour now and has a permanent home in Chicago and Las Vegas.
