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

This is a high energy show, fun to watch. If you are of an age to know who these people were and a little of their stories , you will be smiling for 90 minutes. Excellent singing, acting, and the musicians were top notch. Very impressive. We were able to get discount tickets from hot tix. The theater was nearly... More

The Apollo Theatre is located in the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago. If you are staying in the loop, provide some extra time to commute as this venue is 3.6 miles from the river, which results in a $18.00 cab fare (with tip). If driving, event parking is available in the associate ramp. This theatre is small and very intimate.... More

It was not the grandest, largest, most spectacular or acoustically sound - but I love it. Its small, intimate with good seat spacing in rows and comfortable seats. There's also not a bad seat in place - none with blocked views. Always sit in middle section if you can. Overall, it's a low key theater in great area. Lots of... More
