My sisters and I attended this program and had a ball! The entertainers were smooth in their performances and seemed like they really enjoyed performing to an excited and appreciative crowd. We saw all different age levels at the show, and all seemed to enjoy it! Wouldn't recommend it for under 8-10 years old. We knew basically about the *story*... More

An amazing show based on a true life story! Four of the best together at once! I have seen this show five times and each with a different cast. Each one incredible! Don't miss this one! I'm ready to go again!

We went with a group of seven for our parents 50th wedding anniversary! What a great show! We all enjoyed it from start to finish. The musicians / singers were so talented and engaging - what a great Sunday afternoon. Our parents grew up in that era of music and it was always played in our house, so we were... More

Talented performers and familiar lively hits from the 50's made this a memorable evening. Having grown up in Memphis and being somewhat familiar with Sun Records and the "Million Dollar Quartet" made this high energy show based on an actual event all the more enjoyable. The venue is small and the audience is close to the action from any seat.... More

We really got lucky on this one. We were in Chicago for the weekend and looking for a Broadway show. Apparently, this show has been going on for many years in Chicago. It's a reenactment of one night jam session with Elvis Pressley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, and Johnny Cash. I'm really not a fan of any of these... More

The Apollo theater was under renovation and we nearly passed it by, but once inside and the show started, you are transported to the 1950's. This was a fabulous performance especially by the guy who plays Jerry Lee Lewis. You'll know all the songs even if you were born decades after, and you'll be singing the songs long after the...

It's was a fantastic show! These people have an amazing talent and rocked the house for the entire show! I could not stay in my seat! Great history lesson of how these stars were discovered as well! Glad I saw the show.

The famous photograph original is in Memphis, TN but the music here is magical. Stop in for nostalgia, history or just to spend some quality listening time.

MDQ at the Apollo Theatre was a fun experience.You are hard pressed to stay still in your chair, but then they start actively encouraging you to clap and move. The theatre is undergoing some renovations, however once the lights go out and the music starts you forget all that and just enjoy the show!

Took my college age children to see this show for a matinee. Wasn't sure what to expect with an afternoon crowd and music they wouldn't necessarily know. The cast is so very talented! Then a couple of people from the audience started dancing during the encore, so the performers rolled with it and got everyone involved. Great, great show and... More
