Critical Praise for Million Dollar Quartet 

It is so tightly and professionally run that it’s our opinion (and you heard it here first) that “Million Dollar Quartet” is a show that will take the Cabaret Theatre out of their current position as a leading regional venue and bring them towards more national recognition — a venue that will, and should, become as much a part of your annual theater destination calendar as the nearby Oregon Shakespeare Festival.

Jeffrey Gillespie

Ashland Daily Tidings

The vintage rock ‘n’ roll in Oregon Cabaret Theatre’s “Million Dollar Quartet” is enough to bring any house to its feet.

Laurie Heuston

Medford Mail Tribune

If you're a fan of classic rock 'n' roll — and who isn't — here's a million dollar suggestion: See "Million Dollar Quartet" at the Oregon Cabaret Theatre.

Edith Decker

Grants Pass Daily Courier

We have season tickets to the cabaret and it never fails to delight! It has shows that play for months that are always well rehearsed and keep us on the edge of our seats in addition to shows for a limited time that always seem to surprise us with the caliber of performers that Ashland, Oregon is able to produce! We will be getting season tickets for the rest of our lives!
