It was Elvis Presley at his most charismatic, and only a small group of fans had the privilege of being there... until now. With actor Casey Ryan as Elvis, the musical tribute show Elvis '68 relives a historic moment in music history, leather suit and all. This stage re-creation of the crooner's 1968 live comeback special explores a pivotal moment in the life and career of Elvis Presley. At the time, Elvis hadn't played a live show in seven years and his popularity was fading. But what was meant to be a safe Christmas concert turned into an intimate jam session, as Elvis and friends intercut rock 'n' roll hits with storytelling and audience interaction. Learn More

I love the book. I really liked the movie. I LOVE THIS adaptation!!!
This was such a GREAT production. The actors and actresses were very very good. I found myself lost in the story right off the bat. At first I was a little afraid how they would squeeze all the story into 2 hrs but they did it. The time went by so fast as I was drawn into the vengeance of The Count. I would see this again!! I only regret that the audience was so small. I wished that more people could have experienced such a great production!! Yes, they did receive a standing ovation.
Quotes & Highlights
“An impeccably solid piece of theatrical work … the whole thing thrilling from swash to buckle.” — The Wall Street Journal
Based on the epic classic novel by Alexandre Dumas, this translation by Charles Morey — originally adapted for the Alabama Shakespeare Festival — artfully shapes the harrowing tale into a captivating night of theater.
Starring Michael Keeney as the Count, the story follows the journey of Edmond Dantes, who is falsely imprisoned by his friends and spends years in prison studying and preparing to bring cold, calculated, insidious revenge upon those who betrayed him. As he gets closer to his goals, he finds that he is losing the little humanity he has left, and seeks to understand the nature of revenge and forgiveness amidst the nefarious schemes he has set into motion. Director Nathan Makaryk weaves the story together with a powerful ensemble cast, an ambitious scenic design, a compelling score, and captivating sword combat.
