Small intimate musical theater production back in the day of Sun Records with Elvis, Johnny Cash, Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis and their music.

Loved it all! The performance is terrific and well done. You must like Elvis and the singers from his time. This is a true winner.

Great night out, went with my parents and sisters for a birthday celebration. Nice venue, close where ever you sit. Great for the people who grew up in the 60's and 70s.

These musicians did an amazing job to energize an older crowd in the afternoon! I would highly recommend this show. We took a cab there from downtown and an easy subway ride back. Small and old theatre.

Went on Saturday night for 8pm show. Apollo Theater is small and quaint which was great. Not a bad seat in the house. Music was good and we are from Nashville so we are tough to impress. Show was good for all ages and you could tell the entire crowd loved it. Show is only 1.5 hrs and they serve... More

This is a fantastic show - especially rock and roll fans will love it, but even my teen daughter had fun. It is nominally a musical, but the story of Sun records and how each rock and roll giant got their start there is interesting and at times touching. Ask to sit near Jerry Lee! Elvis might flirt with you...

Excellant singing at a quaint theatre. Not easiest place to find as it doesn't look like a theatre but worth the visit. We booked tickets from the uk before travelling. Drinks and snacks available.

The Apollo Theater is getting renovated, but it is a quaint venue that isn't too big. There is a bar that allows you to take your libations in with you. Don't take any photographs once inside. The music itself was great, and will have you singing and clapping along. The lead actors were perfect. Take the time to enjoy this... More

Lots of great tunes, very slim plot or storyline. Leave humming but not enlightened. Expensive show in a poor venue.

Early rock and roll at its best. It's been in Chicago for along time and people are still coming to hear Elvis, Johnny, Jerry Lee, and Carl. A lot of fun
