The Ogunquit Playhouse is pleased to be a part of Capriccio, Ogunquit’s annual Festival of the Arts September 8 to 17. In celebration of this tradition, the Ogunquit Playhouse is offering BUY-ONE-GET-ONE-FREE tickets for performances of “Heartbreak Hotel” during Capriccio week. See our website for specific dates.
From the creator of the Tony Award-winning Million Dollar Quartet, we are proud to produce the world premiere of Heartbreak Hotel. This brand new tribute to the “King of Rock ‘n’ Roll” is the prequel to Tony-winning, record-setting, smash hit Million Dollar Quartet that became the greatest selling show in Ogunquit Playhouse history.
This tender story follows Elvis Presley in the early years of his bourgeoning career as he and Sam Phillips create the music that will forever change their lives. As Elvis’ career skyrockets, both lifting and shattering the lives of those he loves, a secret love story is revealed, a betrayal is discovered, and “Colonel” Tom Parker changes the course of history, all in just 18 short months.
This world premiere musical features hit songs from the King himself as well as the legends who influenced his iconic music, with chart-toppers including “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Tutti Frutti,” “That’s All Right Mamma,” “Shake Rattle and Roll,” and, of course, “Heartbreak Hotel.”
Offer cannot be combined with any other discounts. Excludes premium seats. Not valid on previously purchased tickets. Call 207-646-5511, or online www.ogunquitplayhouse.org.
