ISF: 'Million Dollar Quartet'

Through Sept. 29, Idaho Shakespeare Festival


It's 1956, Thunderbirds revved their engines and teens chucked nickels into the jukebox, but in a recording studio in Memphis, Tennessee, four of rock-and-roll's biggest stars were about to turn popular culture on its head. In Idaho Shakespeare Festival's production of Million Dollar Quartet, Director Hunter Foster will take audiences into the room with Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins, who all just happen to be in the same place at the same time. If you've ever imagined what it's like to be a fly on the wall in a recording studio watching four legends create historic music, this is your chance. The iconic Rock and Roll Hall-of-Famers will sing classic hits like Walk The Line, Great Balls of Fire, Blue Suede Shoes and others. Million Dollar Quartet freezes a historic moment for the audience, leaving everlasting memories.

Through Sunday, Sept. 29. Times vary. $22-$42. 5657 Warm Springs Ave., Boise,
