Neither musical nor play, Million Dollar Quartet (Nederlander) is a harmless synthetic replica of the famous 1956 occasion when Elvis (Eddie Clendenning), Johnny Cash (Lance Guest), Carl Perkins (Robert Britton Lyons), and Jerry Lee Lewis (Levi Kreis) all turned up to jam at a Memphis recording studio. Kreis's wisecracks and pianistic stunts guarantee the loudest applause, but both Lyons's dour-mouthed, envious-eyed Perkins and Guest's sheepishly sturdy Cash offer him strong competition. If you don't care how deep they delve as long as you've got your plastic Elvis settin' on the dashboard of your car, it passes the time harmlessly.
