Good-ness, gra-cious, great balls of acting fire! Swallowing the scenery, belching, then swallowing some more, Martin Kaye jumps into the heart, soul and skin of rock trailblazer Jerry Lee Lewis in the resident production of Million Dollar Quartet at Harrah’s. The Brit-born, live-wire actor with the mop of blond curls pounds the 88s, leaps atop the piano and tosses off one-liners with smart-bomb precision, detonating across the stage. “[Lewis] believed wholeheartedly they were going to hell because they were playing this music, but he couldn’t stop playing it,” Kaye says. “He was kind of possessed.” Ditto his portrayer.
