Pittsburgh CLO at the Benedum Theatre
The photo of the real-life quartet plays a role near the end of the show, in a beautifully lit shot that could be the perfect closer — but not so fast. As in “Mamma Mia!” before it, “Million Dollar Quartet” has the guys trade their workaday duds for glitzy jackets and a miniconcert that allows the audience to get up and dance. Mr. Snyder gets one last chance to go full-on King of Rock, with windmill arms and rolling hips before — and this has to be said — Elvis has left the building.
