Elvis Musical "Heartbreak Hotel" Coming To Chicago in June 2018
Attention broken-hearted lovers of Elvis! A new live show, co-produced by Authentic Brands Group and Elvis Presley Enterprises and penned by one of the creators of “Million Dollar Quartet,” is coming to Chicago.
“Heartbreak Hotel” will bow at the Broadway Playhouse, 175 E. Chestnut St., on June 30, initially playing through Sept. 9.
Billed as a prequel to the smash hit “Million Dollar Quartet,” which also started in Chicago, “Heartbreak Hotel” had a prior engagement at the Ogunquit Playhouse in Maine, but has been retooled since then. Penned by Floyd Mutrux, the piece tells the story of Presley’s rise to fame, focusing on his relationship with the producer Sam Phillips and his subsequent manager, Colonel Parker. The score, as you would expect, is made up of Presley hits. Casting and ticket details have yet to be announced.
