On Tuesday night Million Dollar Quartet opened at Harrah’s Las Vegas to an enthusiastic, full house in the Harrah’s Showroom. The smash-hit production is inspired by extraordinary true story of the fateful evening that brought Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Elvis Presley together for one of the greatest rock ‘n’ roll jam sessions in history (Pictured: Benjamin D.
