The key character the musical revolves around is Sam Phillips, the owner of Sun Studios, and pioneer of country-rock. Currently playing the role of Sam in the UK, and playing the same role in Auckland is Jason Donovan, who has been critically acclaimed for his performance. Jason himself is excited about playing in NZ for the first time. “Million Dollar Quartet is such a special show, that has wonderful heart and tells such a great story,” he says. Be inspired by this true event from 1956, and get your rock ’n’ roll shoes on for a fabulous night at The Civic!
