I don't know what it was REALLY like that day at Sun Records, but the Broadway version is fantastic! The actors were pretty much spot on in their portrayals of the four legends, and very entertaining. They are also all actual musicians, and their immense talent made the show that much more enjoyable. The fellow who played Jerry Lee Lewis nearly stole the show, his character every bit as flamboyant as Jerry Lee "The Killer" Lewis was rumored to be. (He's the last of the four still currently living, and is probably not overly flamboyant these days.)

If you live near New York, Chicago or London, or if the touring company makes a stop near your town, it's definitely worth checking out. It's truly a rockin' good time!
