Last night I saw Million Dollar Quartet at Malvern Festival Theatre and had a fab night!
The show portrays the famous jam session that was had between four amazing musicians who were none other than… Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins. Brought together by the father of Rock and Roll Sam Phillips played by Jason Donovan.
It’s filled with classic rock and roll hits with an amazingly talented cast. Martin Kaye who played the role of Jerry Lee Lewis had what I can only describe as mad piano skills – he really knew how to work the audience. Elvis (played by Ross Wild) was so like Elvis I thought it was actually him on stage, his voice and persona were incredible. He managed to capture the essence of the character whilst putting his own spin on it. What can I say about the fantastic Robbie Durham (Johnny Cash) – I was so impressed with his performance and he absolutely owned the stage.
The production transports you back in time and reminds us of the magic of rock and roll. It got the audience off their feet and dancing and overall it was such a great night!
