GREAT show, especially for someone familiar with the music of the '50s and '60s. The cast was SO TALENTED. The show was only 1 1/2 hours, a perfect length. By the end we were all on our feet dancing.

One of the best shows I've seen in Chicago. Going back to Chicago soon and will probably go to see it again. If you like music and the songs of Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis, Carl Perkins, and Johnny Cash, you will love it.

Took our houseguests to see this show that has been in Chicago for about 6yrs. Had always heard good things about it but finally bought tickets. It is based on a recording session with Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Elvis Presley. The narrator introduces these talented guys and gives you the behind the scenes stories on their... More

Love this show! We bought our tickets at Hottix (always good to save a little money) and took the red line.(easy). The show is great and I really don't think you could get a bad seat at the Apollo. I would go again in a heartbeat!

I took my teenage son to this show because he loves the music from this era. The theater was very small and our seats were great! The show was much more entertaining than I imagined. All of the musicians were excellent!! The actor who played Jerry Lee Lewis was so talented that we even went to see him in another... More

My husband and I enjoyed the show. It was entertaining and full of great music. We called the theater and asked for the obstructed view, which was much less than the full price. Basically, you're sitting in the area with the railings. Our view was not obstructed at all! The parking is $15 right next to the theater.

This show was the highlight of our trip. I read about the show here on TripAdvisor. You do not have to be a child of the 40’s, 50’s, 60’s or 70’s to enjoy the music. We took a cab drive from the Hyatt Regency because it was too far to walk. After reading the reviews, I goggled Million Dollar Quartet... More

The venue was in Lincoln Park, not the center of Chicago. We took a taxi there from the Palmer House. It took 25 minutes. The theater was small and not very elegant. However, the performers worked very hard. Johnny Cash was amazing. We enjoyed it, but there were times that we did not understand or follow the dialogue. We did... More

This theatre is very small so you are really sitting close to the stage, there is definitely no bad seat in the house. We bought our tickets at the ticket office just opposite from the Chicago Tourist Office on Randolph Street, price was about 40% less than on the website. The performance of all actors/singers was outstanding, loved them all,... More

We just saw the musical "Million Dollar Quartet" for the 4th time. The last time we saw it was 3 years ago. It was a fantastic show- full of energy. The songs were great and it was fun sometimes singing along. All performers were great - but I thought Jerry Lee Lewis was exceptional. His performance added so much more... More
