I am a bit behind on this post, but better late than never, right?
This is an outstanding touring produciton, eclipsing it's "mother ship" on Broadway - now Off Broadway I believe. I saw the original Broadway cast...all fantastic, but they don't hold a candle to the tour cast.
Lee Ferris shines as the disgruntled Carl Perkins. Martin Kaye must be channeling Jerry Lee Lewis himself as he plays the piano on stage for 90 minutes.
Derek Keeling can't help but seduce the audience with his on the money portrayal of Johnny Cash, and Cody Slaughter is like the reincarnaiton of Elvis on stage.
This is a riveting, and rock-and-rolling musical that will leave you dancing in the streets as you exit the theatre.
We sat in pit seats for the tour stop in San Jose, and I highly recommend getting pit sits if at all possible, it's well worth the cost.
If the tour stops anywhere near you, or if you're in New York City - this is a must see show for any theater or rock and roll lover!
We all have theatre stories! Why not share yours here! Tell us about a great, or terrible show you saw? Did you have an incredible, or not so incredible meeting with an actor? Mabye you need to vent about the person in front of you eating a hamburger? Perhaps just getting to the show was an adventure! Put it here! If you'd like to share an experience with us, just email it to me and I'll publish on the blog! I look forward to reading your words!
