Million Dollar Quartet

I have seen a lot of musicals in my day. But this one.... this one was so amazing! I represent an actor who works at Million Dollar Quartet as an usher, and i was able to get 2 free tickets to see it.  Andrew and i rushed to get there friday after work, and pulled up right on time.  She saved two extra seats for us FRONT ROW CENTER. Oh my goodness. it was awesome. 

Back story, a few summers ago (time flies!!!) Andrew and i flew to Nashville, TN and rented a car and drove to Graceland then to Memphis where we visited Sun Records.  (amongst other things).  We have been dying to see this show since our trip to Tennessee,  but it's pretty pricey- so i jumped at these awesome free tickets!

Sun Records is where Million Dollar Quartet came to life.  On Dec. 4 1956- The recordings were of an impromptu jam session between Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, and Johnny Cash.
If you like any of those guys, i highly suggest this show if and when it comes to a theatre near you. 
Here are some pics i took of our trip to Sun Studios:

A pic i took of the picture hanging in the studio of the infamous night.

These actors i saw were brilliant- the guy that played Jerry Lee Lewis played that piano like he WAS Jerry Lee Lewis.  The guy that played Elvis.. looked JUST LIKE HIM.  creepy. Elvis was in the building. 


Ps.  I am real happy it's fall here in Chi-town.  I bought a Groupon for a Haunted House, and my friends and i are planning our 2nd annual trip to go apple picking in the Apple Orchards. 
You know what you can get an apple orchard besides apples?  PUMPKIN DONUTS.
