In this blockbuster musical experience, the actors play the instruments, sing the songs and take on the character of the four icons of popular music. Featuring such songs as “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Great Balls of Fire,” “Walk the Line,” “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On,” and more, this thrilling musical brings you inside the recording studio for one unforgettable music-making night.
