One of the heights of Elvis Presley’s later career was his 1968 television comeback special, simply titled Elvis, in which the King of Rock n’ Roll sang all his classic hits in an intimate setting. Meant to put Presley back in style after the changes in the music scene and shifts in youth culture, the ’68 special was an enormous success, and helped launched the final upswing in the King’s career. But behind the scenes, as dramatized in Brian Newell’s play, Presley feels the pressure and sees this as his one chance to make or break his career. Travel back through time and experience his epic show in the flesh, and get inside Presley’s head with actor Casey Ryan, who performs the King with uncanny likeness and talent.
