Lace up your blue suede shoes and get ready to relive the storied life of the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll, Elvis Presley in the premiere of a brand new bio-musical – Elvis: A Musical Revolution.
Following successful Australian runs of The Wedding Singer and Cruel Intentions: The ’90s Musical, David Venn Enterprises presents a look at the most pivotal moments in Elvis Presley’s life and career. Spanning his upbringing in Tupelo, Mississippi all the way to his triumphant ‘68 Comeback Special, this production gives audiences of every generation a chance to experience the music that continues to have a cultural impact to this day.
Featuring over 40 hit songs from Elvis’ remarkable discography, including the likes of Jailhouse Rock, Heartbreak Hotel and Can’t Help Falling in Love, each musical number will be backed by dazzling choreography and incredible costumes.
“With over one billion records sold worldwide, and a name that needs no introduction, Elvis is regarded as one of the most important figures of twentieth century popular culture. It’s incredibly exciting to bring new life to his story and celebrate the man, the icon, – the King of Rock ‘n Roll and the impact he made.” says producer David Venn.
