My mom, sister and I had a girls weekend trip to Chicago and saw the Million Dollar Quartet. We ordered our tickets through hottix.com for half off. The theater is small so there are no bad seats. The show was great and the actors interacted with the audience throughout the show. By the end of the show everyone in the... More

Took a chance with this show and boy are we glad we did! We got last minute reduced tickets and it was well worth the cost. The musicians were all extremely talented. Having traveled to the Big Apple, we were concerned that we would be disappointed, but we weren't. The show went by quickly and we were bummed that it... More

We have seen Million Dollar Quartet several times and I am sure that we will go back. The musicians are talented and energetic. The mix of music and back story gives you the feeling of being at both a play and concert at the same time. This is a must see for any music lover.

Trusted the reviews on trip advisor on this one. Some good tunes but I have seen better...much better.. Save your money and hit a blues venue instead

We so enjoyed the Million Dollar Quartet - the story - the music - a fun night. Our only problem was we took the train to save money and did not have a GPS to get us to the theater. So we got lost a bit - had to ask for direction and made it there. Would recommend this show.

I saw this in NY and again in Chicago. The venue is intimate and can be challenging for those with mobility limitations but the music is great and the acting enthusiastic. The audience loved it all.

A little disappointed because when we went, 3 of the five cast members were replaced by understudies. Was a fun show anyways. Small theatre, almost all seats were good.

Wow - you just walk out wanting to listen to the oldies of Carl Perkins, Elvis, Johnny Cash and Jerry Lee Lewis. The actors rock the small stage and theater so much you can't help but get off your feet. So much fun. We would see it again in a heart beat!
