Million Dollar Quartet celebrates record-breaking run in Chicago
Oct 25, 2013


Million Dollar Quartet ChicagoMillion Dollar Quartet, now the longest-running Broadway musical production in Chicago's history, has extended through March 30, 2014.  With over 2,000 performances and 5 smash years in Chicago, the Tony Award-winning rock 'n' roll musical has set a new record for the longest-running Broadway musical in Chicago. 

The Chicago production continues to break box office records at the Apollo Theater, 2540 N. Lincoln Ave., Chicago.  Tickets are now on sale through March 30, 2014 at the Apollo box office, phone (773) 935-6100, and online through Ticketmaster, 

Producer Gigi Pritzker comments, "After five incredible years, 500,000 tickets sold, 1,949 performances, 6,000 guitar picks, and 500 cans of hairspray it's an absolute thrill for MDQ to take its place as the longest-running musical in Chicago history.  Since the very beginning, Chicago has embraced Million Dollar Quartet and we are grateful for the continued and enthusiastic support of our home town audiences.  It's been a hit in Chicago, New York, London, Japan, Las Vegas and on the national tour.  The show remains as exciting and engaging as always-partially due to the more than 20 rock 'n' roll hits in the show and the tremendous talent on stage."

Million Dollar Quartet has extended performances through March 30, 2014, with cast members Brandon Bennett (Elvis Presley), Shaun Whitley (Carl Perkins), Lance Lipinsky (Jerry Lee Lewis), Adam Lee (Johnny Cash), Jason Bradley (Sam Phillips), Aja Goes (Dyanne), Marc Edelstein (Jay Perkins/Bass player) and Dan Leali (Fluke/Drummer). The Tony Award-winning musical inspired by the famed 1956 recording session that brought together legendary rock 'n' roll icons Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Elvis Presley, celebrates its long run in Chicago, a Tony Award-winning New York run, a long-running London production, a newly-opened production in Las Vegas, and a national tour that kicked-off in October 2011.
