A Rock n' Roll city break to the West End

Monday, 7 February 2011 12:16 PM

Relive the golden era of Rock n’ Roll with Superbreak this spring, as the hit Broadway musical Million Dollar Quarter is coming to London’s West End. Featuring the music of Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins, this show is sure to have you toe-tapping all night long.

After a successful run in New York, Million Dollar Quarter is previewing from tomorrow (February 8), with the official opening set for the end of the month and you can be there on a theatre mini-break.

The show is based on the true story of how Presley, Cash, Lewis and Perkins met up in December 1956 for a one-night recording session, resulting in a dramatic mix of jealousy, friendship and great music.

Prices start at £95.50 per person, based on a one-night stay at a three-star London hotel with breakfast, and tickets to the show at the Noel Coward theatre.

This price is based on two-sharing in April, with four-star upgrades available through Superbreak for an extra £36 per person.
