Well worth coming back for again, if you like the music of Johny Cash, Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Carl Perkins, don't miss this. Very entertaining, theater is small and intimate, easy to get to (for Chicago). Parking is OK. We took the train (amtrak) in and caught a taxis to the theater this time. Worked very well for us.

This was a fun evening. The show has been running for six years and I can see why. It captures a little piece of history, with famous characters that most people can relate to. We went to an evening show, and the cast were high energy, and got the audience tapping their feet and then at the end up on... More

You know, if you love these musicians and their songs, you'll probably enjoy this a lot. The performers are excellent and clearly very hard-working. But it's basically a little theater filled with crowds from tour buses. A bit of Branson on Lake Michigan.

We chose this show at the last minute on the advice of our concierge. The exterior of the theatre appeared to be under renovation, but all inside was fine. The performance was great, with the entire audience on their feet by the last song.

Loved the show. Singing was terrific, very high energy. Loved the theatre, there did not seem to be a bad seat as theatre is small.

The story is excellent and I found out lots I didn't know. The standard of performance was excellent, it just was not the type of music I am into. It is a ways out of town but does have parking next door which was a big help. The theatre is a little cramped, my 6'4" husband was very uncomfortable. Drinks... More

Saw this for our 20th anniversary present to ourselves. Did not disappoint. The show was great. All the performers were very good. We were sitting to the side and were able to watch "Jerry Lee Lewis" on the piano, he was awesome.Rating them I'd say #1 was JLL, #2 a tie with "Johnny Cash" and "Carl Perkins" and the Girlfriend,...
