Believe it or not we knew nothing about this, but took a chance just based on the concept. It was extremely entertaining and highly recommended!

Toe tapping, good time fun! Musicians playing Jerry Lee, Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash and Elvis were talented. Actor playing Dyanne could really belt out a song. Lots of great tunes with some funny moments. Anyone who loves Rockabilly would love this show! Highly recommended. Barn and Company BBQ restaurant just down the street is great pre performance.

We bought the cheap seats the morning of the show on a Sunday. The show didn't sell out and we were moved from the last row to the front row. The venue is not big so we actually only moved up about 10 rows. The show was great, singers were very good. If you are looking for an affordable show... More

I'm a huge Elvis fan and have been to the real Sun Studios in Memphis. We go to Broadway shows regularly and when this show came to Broadway, everyone thought we'd go right away. We didn't. I guess I thought it would be inauthentic and not live up to the quality of the guys portrayed. Well it was FANTASTIC! One... More

Drove right past it the first time. It's under a much needed renovation. However the show is a lot of fun with some really great music. Center section 3rd row gave us a great view in this smaller theater.

I'm not a big fan of musicals, but this one was awesome! The musics are great, you wont feel sleepy at all. Prefer seats in front or to the right of the stage, othewise we will only see jerry lee lewisfrom the back.

Went there for a special night and left disappointed. The singing was OK not over the top, I really thought I'd be tapping my foot and enjoying it more. 'Elvis' was a big let down. The actor was too 'short' for the roll and didn't have the confidece I expected from Elvis. 'Johnny Cash' was a good singer, but he... More

We had a lot of fun at this play. The theater is very intimate and there are no bad seats. The performers do a great job of putting on a high energy show. If you love old time rock and roll...do not miss this one. Plus the theater has its own parking lot..a big plus due to its location in... More

Great rock 'n roll music performed by talented actors and musicians. We sat in the front row at the small and intimate Apollo Theatre, you felt like you were right there with them. A thouroughly enjoyable performance.

If you like rock n roll you will love this show. We saw it at the Apollo Theater which is a small venue and it was absolutely fantastic. It was like you were right in the room with Elvis, Johnny, Carl, and Jerry Lee. We were lucky enough to have front row seats only a few feet away from the... More
