FAIRFIELD — The King is coming to the Center, the Sondheim Center that is. “One Night with the King” will showcase the greatest moments of Elvis’ musical and acting career at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 26 through a live musical production on the Sondheim Center stage.

The show features a full band, highlighting Elvis’ early career as he broke into the business at Sun Records, his introduction to the nation on the biggest television shows of the times, through the greatest musical moments of the King of Rock and Roll. From the gold lamé jackets to the rhinestone-studded jumpsuit of Las Vegas and everything in between, “One Night with the King” has it all.

The show stars Brandon Bennett, named the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Champion by Elvis Presley Enterprises, Inc. Branson has starred in “The Elvis Story” and has most recently performed with the Chicago cast of the Broadway and international hit musical, “Million Dollar Quartet.”
