When: Wednesdays-Sundays. Continues through Jan. 3 2010

Re-creating a legendary 1956 jam session involving Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, and Jerry Lee Lewis, this crowd-pleaser is basically a vehicle for crackling renditions of classic tunes, including "Blue Suede Shoes," "That's All Right," and "Great Balls of Fire." Brian McCaskill gives the show its emotional center as Sun Records founder Sam Phillips, a man caught between competing personal and business pressures. (AW)
