“Starting in January, we saw 2022 as another ‘Covid year’ and planned it to be flexible,” said production art director Robert Smyth LAMB. “It allowed us to make this great show go far beyond what we thought was possible. We were blessed with an extremely talented cast and the audience thought it was the perfect theatrical experience yet.

Thousands of spectators have seen the show several times.


MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET will end with the same cast it started with on April 2 –

Brett Benowitz as Carl Perkins
Michael Louis Cusimano as Elvis Presley,
Charles Evans, Jr as Johnny Cash,
Katie Sapper as Dyanne,
Lance Arthur Smith as Sam Phillips
Ben Van Diepen as Jerry Lee Lewis
with Mackenzie Leighton on bass and Brian Dall on drums.

The company spent 17 seasons there, steadily building a growing following throughout the county. LAMB’S became the area’s third-largest theater company (after the Old Globe and the La Jolla Playhouse) after its resident theater moved to Coronado in 1994.

Robert Smyth, joined Lamb’s Players in 1976 to start the group’s resident theater work, and became the organization’s Production Artistic Director in 1985.
