The music is great (if you like this kind). The story line is a thin thread that held together the music. If you like Elvis, Cash, etc., you're likely to have a very fun time.

This show was so enjoyable! I'd highly recommend. It was as good as the Jersey Boys show we recently saw in Vegas. The theater is not going to have any curb appeal from the street or in terms of its lobby etc but once inside you'll see that there are no bad seats. Better yet, the show will leave you... More

The Apollo Theater is the perfect venue for Million Dollar Quartet. We were able to see the expressions, as well as the beautifully harmonized voices of every actor. They sing, dance, and act individually and as a group, with intimacy and professionalism. My favorite moment was Jerry Lee Lewis (even though I'm a big Elvis fan) singing Great Balls of... More

This was one of the best shows I have seen in Chicago next to Jersey Boys. I would recommend the show, not only for content, but the theater is awesome with perfect seating for all.
