It was December 4, 1956 — the night that Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins came together as the Million Dollar Quartet. The foursome met at Sun Records studio for a history-making jam session. Launched on Broadway in 2010, the Tony-nominated musical that captures the magic of that night features a score of such legendary songs as “Folsom Prison Blues,” Hound Dog,” “Sixteen Tons” and “Great Balls of Fire.” But the show is more than just a slew of hit songs strung together; there’s also a story about the secrets, promises, successes and failures that tied the four men together in ways unknown to the public. 7:30 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, 8 p.m. Friday, 2 and 8 p.m. Saturday, and 2 and 7:30 p.m. Sunday. Hobby Center, 800 Bagby. For information, call 713-315-2525 or visit www.milliondollarquartetlive.com. $24 to $73.
