Here is a well known photo of the four actual musicians taken that day at Sun Records.
The show played in various regional productions and had a run on Broadway from 2010-2011 and then at the West End (London) 2011-2012. It was nominated for three Tony Awards (Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical, and Best Performance by a Featured Actor in a Musical). Levi Kreis won the Featured Actor award for his portrayal of Jerry Lee Lewis.
The Chicago cast are phenomenal musicians and actors that perform well-known songs of these four music legends. Due to our inside connection (our daughter) we were lucky enough to see them warm up before the show and met them as well (some of the great benefits of having a kid work in theatre!) We also met the stage manager and several other crew members. Very cool.
No photos are allowed on the set, but here's a photo of Amanda and her good friend, Alarie, the Wardrobe Supervisor.
Carl Perkins, played by Shaun Whitley: Blue Suede Shoes, Who Do you Love, See you Later Alligator
Johnny Cash, played by Adam Lee: Sixteen Tons, I Walk the Line, Folsom Prison Blues, Ghostriders
Elvis Presley, played by Brandon Bennett: That's All Right, Long Tall Sally, Hound Dog
Jerry Lee Lewis, played by Lance Lipinsky: Wild Child, Great Balls of Fire, Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On
Dyanne, played by Kelly Lamont (very sultry!): Fever, I Hear You Knockin'
While all of these performers are amazing talents, Lance will make you think you are really seeing a young Jerry Lee!
We love this show and highly recommend it! Go see it if you get the chance, you will not be disappointed. It is a great evening of non-stop entertainment. I know I am biased, but we just loved the Chicago cast. What a great musical!!
