Tuesday: "Million Dollar Quartet"

Who cares that the plot of jukebox musical "Million Dollar Quartet," padded as it is with tributes to Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash and Carl Perkins, isn't quite historically accurate? The Tony-winning show, set inside Memphis' Sun Studio in December 1956, follows the proto-rock gods and their producer, Sam Phillips, on the night when Cash reveals he's signed a contract with Columbia Records. Also that night: Phillips ponders leaving Sun to work for RCA, and Perkins can't quite forgive the Pelvis for scoring a bigger hit with "Blue Suede Shoes." The musical opens 8 p.m. Tuesday at Fort Lauderdale's Broward Center, 201 S.W. Fifth Ave., and runs through Nov. 14. $29.50-$69.50, 954-462-0222 or BrowardCenter.org.
