THEATER | 'Million Dollar Quartet' 

In December of 1956, Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, and Carl Perkins recorded an impromptu jam session at Sun Records in Memphis that is regarded as one of the greatest recordings ever made. The session included the classic hits "Great Balls of Fire," "Sixteen Tons," "I Walk the Line," "Hound Dog" and others, and the session is immortalized in "Million Dollar Quartet," film producer, writer and screenwriter Floyd Mutrux's musical that premiered at Florida Seaside Music Theatre in 2006. Since then, the show has become a worldwide hit, was nominated for three Tony Awards, and was the basis for the 2017 eight-part TV series, "Sun Records." "Million Dollar Quartet" returned to Geva Theatre Center earlier this month after being the season closer production in 2017, when it completely sold out and was extended for an additional week.

"Million Dollar Quartet" continues through Sunday, July 8, at Geva Theatre's Wilson Stage, 75 Woodbury Boulevard. Tuesdays through Thursdays at 7:30 p.m. (Wednesday, July 4 performance is at 2 p.m.), Fridays at 8 p.m., Saturdays at 3 and 8 p.m., and Sundays at 2 and 7 p.m. Tickets start at $34. 232-4382;
