I was traveling solo in Chicago and went to Million Dollar Quartet at Apollo. I'm not sure if they are remodeling or what, but outside you couldn't tell it was a theater. Inside wasn't anything special, but was comfortable.

We drove to Chicago(live about 100 miles away) for a special evening and it was. This theatre is old and very very beautiful. The seating is good. We were in the balcony and there didn't seem to be any obstructions anywhere! I like the balcony as I am short in stature and can see better being up! Broadway in Chicago... More

We were in Chicago a couple of weeks ago for a getaway weekend and saw this show on a Friday night. What a great time! I grew up with this music and the musicians/ actors were terrific. My girlfriend who is more Beatles fan than Elvis may have enjoyed the show as much as me. I would highly recommend spending... More

If you are open to attending a show in a small, intimate venue, this is the place for you. The staff is super friendly. There is not really a bad seat, although my preference, based on the few shows I have been to would be to sit in the center section or the two sections on either side of the... More

We recently attended The Million Dollar Quartet at The Apollo Theater and had a great time...the show was a rockin' good time and there are no bad seats. I will say that we had some trouble finding the theater even in a cab. The theater seems to be under construction as well as under the "L" So several times the... More

The theater is located in Lincoln Park and is a nice walking area. We felt safe getting there. The theater itself is small and a little dated, but there is not a bad seat in the place. The show was amazing and the music was fabulous. Anyone who like '50s music would love this show.

We saw the "Million Dollar Quartet" at the Apollo at the end of October and it was wonderful. Strongly recommend it for all. It was the weekend of our 55th High School reunion, and the music in the show was just the ticket for our weekend!

We went to see Million Dollar Quartet but almost drove past the theatre- the sign isn't very big and it was surrounded by scaffolding as they're doing some work. Parking was very close and easy to get in and out. The theater itself is fairly small and I think all seats would be good. We had great seats right in... More

The Apollo Theater in Chicago is quite small, but it was perfect for a show like Million Dollar Quartet. We had the cheap seats but still had a good view of the stage. Not the best location - sits under an overpass for the El train! At quiet times during the performance you could hear the train passing by outside.... More

This is a great theater and you will not find a bad seat in the house! It is a small theater that is set up in a U auditorium style, so everyone can easily see and hear what is going on stage. I took the Red Line from downtown and exited on Fullerton station. It was then only about 4-5... More
