I went to Kravis last night to see “Million Dollar Quartet” and forgive me but I can’t resist… Elvis was in the house. So too were Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash and Jerry Lee Lewis. These famous singers, some of the most important figures at the dawn of rock ‘n’ roll, were played by Cody Ray Slaughter, James Barry, Scott Moreau and John Countryman, starting with Elvis.

South Florida audiences have already been treated to several rock operas this season: “We Will Rock You” spun together the song catalog of Queen with a silly science fiction plot last fall at Miami’s Arsht Center, while the angst of contemporary youth was proclaimed very loudly in “American Idiot,” featuring the music of Green Day, just a few weeks ago at the Broward Center.
