I guess the theater district was off season when we went on Labor Day Weekend because when we asked the concierge about shows she had very little to offer. She offered us this show and we opted to give it a try. We were a little skeptical when we sat down and appeared to be the youngest ones in the... More

Loved this show so much, I've gone twice! Great for all ages. My 12 year old loved it! Some members of the cast signed autographs on our way out, which thrilled her.

This was a great show and the cast were very good singers and actors. The music will make you tap your foot and by the end of it the entire audience was on their feet singing along. Fun time!

Good music, great story, small theater where all seats are good. Got low priced tickets day of show on ticketmaster. Very talented cast. Only recommendation is that they get a new hairstylist...three of the actors had visible wigs with their clips showing.

This show is tops on my list when hosting out of town visitors! Everyone loves music, knows Presley, Lewis, Perkins, and Cash, and the show is known all over the world. Take it from me-I know. The venue is small and there are no "bad seats". The cast is amazing and ...well it has been running here in Chicago for... More

We enjoyed the music and the acting. The actors are first rate actors, musicians and singers. The Apollo Theater is intimate...all seats are good and parking is adjoining. Go to nearby Ann Sathers for your meal.

You must see this show when you have a chance! Even if you're not a big fan of Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Carl Perkins circa 1956, you will still enjoy the show. The actors/musicians are extremely talented!

Why did I wait so long to see this excellent presentation?? The musicians and music are incredible! We attended on an evening when the parts of Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis Presley and Sam Phillips were all played by understudies. They were first-class actors in our opinion. Colte Julian (Jerry Lee Lewis) has an electric talent that is contagious. The scripting... More
