Million dollar Quartet...

Great show! Intimate venue. Just a real nice evening out for fans of these legends or even if you don't know much about them.

Fabulous show by an incredibly talented and enthusiastic cast. Intimate atmosphere of venue added to the enjoyment immeasurably. If you love rock and roll (or even if you don't) or if you are of a certain age this performance is pure joy.

We saw Million Dollar Quartet and can highly recommend it. The singing and musicianship are top notch. You feel like you are watching Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash and Carl Perkins on stage. The venue is small so every seat is a good seat. They are doing renovations so the lobby area was a bit messy. The signage... More

Wish I could give this two ratings.. Performance of Million Dollar Quartet was top notch. Applause to the performers. Theater--lobby area in dire need of new carpet or flooring that doesn't smell like a wet dog. This place has seen it's better days and needs a renovation and thorough cleaning. That alone will keep me from returning or recommending. No... More

We saw Million Dollar Quarter at the Apollo. The theatre is small & intimate, which is great because every seat in the house is a good one. The service is very friendly and helpful. They serve drinks which can be brought into the theatre. We immensely enjoyed the show and the theatre.

Quaint little theatre with a great show going on. The Million Dollar Quartet is a broadway class musical show, excellent. The actors really resembled the real singers. The story is about Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis when they started out. It is a must while in Chicago!!!

From what I understand this theatre is going to be going through a major renovation and that is a positive thing. It is rather small but the acoustics are good and you can see the stage from just about anywhere. We saw Million Dollar Quartet and it was very good. If you like music - Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis... More

This was our first time at the Apollo9 and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience and the intimate atmosphere. The theater is not huge which made the experience even better. We were very close (as are all seats pretty much) and could see all of the actors expressions. The actors had close contact with the audience and it was obvious they... More

Took our youngest to see Fancy Nancy at the Emerald City Theater inside the Apollo. Much smaller theater that only seats about 400 people. Show was only an hour and was well done. From Katrina Kiss's performance as Fancy Nancy to Micah Kroniokken who played Lionel the entire production was well done. The whole cast did an outstanding job. In... More

I always enjoy a stage play with real actors. The parts played by Lance Lipinsky (Jerry Lee Lewis), Brandon Bennett (Elvis Presley) and Adam Lee (Johnny Cash) were superb!! Lance Lipinsky with his witty humor had the audience in stitches. While Brandon Bennett not only looked like Elvis his mannerisms and facial expressions were magnificent. As for Adam, his voice...
