NEW YORK (AP) - Jerry Lee Lewis will join his likeness onstage when he performs with the cast of the hit Broadway musical "Million Dollar Quartet" for a one-time jam session.
Producers say the artist will perform an undisclosed song Sept. 10 during the show's finale.
Levi Kreis won a Tony Award for his portrayal of Lewis, and they recently recorded the classic 1959 song "Money" for Lewis' upcoming album "Mean Old Man." That raises the probability it's what they'll perform onstage.
"Million Dollar Quartet" tells the story of an actual impromptu jam session in 1956 among Sun Recording artists Lewis, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins and Elvis Presley. The 74-year old Lewis is the only one still living.
The musical was nominated for three Tony Awards including best musical and Kreis' performance.
