The cast for Million Dollar Quartet, the first show of the 2023 season for the West End Theatre Project, is ready to rock.
The cast for the show that runs March 30-April 1, includes Tom Peer as Elvis, Leo Moore as Jerry Lee Lewis, Liam Pollock Seymour as Carl Perkins and Jeffrey Wright as Johnny Cash.

On Dec. 4, 1956, four of the world’s most revered rock 'n' roll legends – Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, and Jerry Lee Lewis – gathered at Sun Records in Memphis, where it all began. The resulting impromptu jam session, spearheaded by Sun Record’s owner, Sam Phillips, would bring about one of the greatest collaborations in musical history.
That day, the group began recording what would be the famously dubbed Million Dollar Quartet. This one-act musical performance features 22 hit songs, including Blue Suede Shoes, Folsom Prison Blues, Great Balls of Fire, and Hound Dog.
All music is played and accompanied solely by the cast.
Lucas Beaver will helm the production with Rony Dal Cin as music director. The production team includes Kristine Thomas, Betty Currie, Trudy DeGraw and Marc James Laporte. Valerie Pluss will produce for West End Theatre Project.
