Million Dollar Quartet was beyond entertaining. The talent of the actors/singer/musicians was beyond what I've seen in a long time. I can't say enough about how much I enjoyed the 90 minutes of music performed in thus small theatre, which makes for a very up close and personal experience. You MUST see this show

Great show and a must see if you like this type of music. Understudy played Johnny Cash and was excellent - sounded like him and even looked a bit like him from where we sat!

My wife and I decided to go see this show based on the reviews we saw on trip advisor. We were not disappointed. This is one of the best shows we have ever seen. The theater is small and intimate and the actors/musicians are very talented. We enjoyed it show much we wish it had been longer. This was fantastic.... More

We absolutely loved it. The music was great. We were in the 2nd row in the front section and it great although there isn't a bad seat in this small theatre.

We have enjoyed the show, which feature the earlier musical lives of Elvis Presley, Johny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins. The theater is small and amphitheater designed. All seats are good and there is no reason to pay extra for more expensive seats.

We have been to quite a few shows in our time, but this rates as one of the best. Don't be put off by the neighbourhood as we found it difficult to find somewhere to eat and had to make do with fast food. Go for the show not the local food and make sure you buy your tickets from... More
