It was considered a seminal moment in rock 'n' roll history and now the moment four music giants came together for an impromptu jam session has hit the Norwich Theatre Royal stage.

Million Dollar Quartet depicts the time, back in December 1956, that Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Johnny Cash met up for a one time only session at Sun Record Studios in Memphis.

Starring Jason Donovan, as Sam Phillips, the owner of Sun Records, the show is 24 carat rock 'n' roll gold.

Piano wizard Ashley Carruthers (Jerry Lee Lewis), Matthew Wycliffe (Carl Perkins), Robbie Durham (Johnny Cash) and Ross William Wild (Elvis Presley) are song-sational and brilliantly bring the stage to life with the amazing stunning, toe-tapping, hip twisting, sounds of the 1950s.

There could be a million reasons to see this show, but there is only one that matters - it is simply four-some.
