Gexa Energy Broadway Series – Million Dollar Quartet

Actors Lee Ferris, who plays the King of Rockabilly, Carl Perkins, and Christopher Grant, who plays Sun Records founder, Sam Phillips, chat about the national tour of the musical, Million Dollar Quartet, currently being presented at the Hobby Center. The show re-creates that fateful night in December 1956, when Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis, all showed up at the Sun Studios in Memphis and together recorded some of the most significant tracks in the early history of rock ‘n roll!

Bob Stevenson speaks with Lee Ferris and Christopher Grant.
