Good luck keeping track of all the recent, plot-thin musicals thrown together to celebrate a certain artist or genre (Jersey Boys, anyone?). But you might find it even harder to suppress your excitement over Million Dollar Quartet (pictured), a smash-hit show inspired by a famous mid-'50s Sun Records session when Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins showed up in the same room together. "Blue Suede Shoes," "That's All Right," "Great Balls of Fire" and "Walk the Line," naturally, are featured showstoppers. The show drops in at Hartford's Bushnell for six evening shows and two matinees.
