Members of the Broadway cast of “Million Dollar Quartet,” one of the five announced shows, showed up Tuesday night at Proctors to perform selections from the musical to help the venue launch its next season.
“Million Dollar Quartet” tells the story of one legendary night – Dec. 4, 1956, when Sam Phillips brought Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins together for a recording session. The jukebox musical includes songs such as “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Folsom Prison Blues” and “Great Balls of Fire” and is slated to run for one week, Jan. 22-27.
The other four musicals are:
- “Mary Poppins,” Oct. 2 – 7, based on the children’s books and classic Disney film;
- “Wicked,” Nov. 7 – 25, based on the novel by the Capital Region’s Gregory Maguire and whichi last played Proctors in 2009;
- “Priscilla Queen of the Desert,” Feb. 12 – 17, based on the Academy Award-winning film from 1994 about three friends – two drag queens and a transsexual — searching for love and friendship in the Australian outback; and,
- “Les Miserables,” April 30 – May 5, 2013, the 25th anniversary production of the international blockbuster about love, revolution, crime and punishment in early 19th-century France.
Subscriptions to the Broadway series are now available. Contact Proctors for more information at 346-6204 or visit http://www.proctors.org.
What do you think of the season?
I am thrilled Wicked is coming back. Saw it last time it played here.. We will be going back a couple of times
Was hoping for Book of Mormons.
Looks like Proctor’s and me won’t be enjoying each other’s company again this coming season, at least for the marquee shows. Another lacklustre list.
