Fabulous event. Two couples, picked up seats a month in advance. Small theater, right on top of the stage. No bad seats. The show was outstanding, and the players were almost eerie in how the channeled each singer. If you like early rock n' roll, you'll love this show. And if you don't, you'll still love this show! Super high... More

Went to Chicago's Apollo Theater to catch this show before it left town. I love the Apollo as it is very intimate and has great sound. We had 2nd row center seats and were at eye level with the performers. We brought our kids(19&22) and they loved it as much as we did. My daughter is now a Johnny Cash... More

We went to see the show on NYE, and what a awesome way to close the year! The show even went a little later, as they sand extra songs, and gave us little glasses with champagne to cheers on the NY! We are a family with ages that range from 17 to 44, and everyone LOVED the show! At the... More

Absolutely brilliant, although Jerry Lee Lewis steals the show. The theatre is a great little venue with some good budget tickets and a small well stocked bar. Go to the toilet before or starts as you almost have to go on/past the stage. Very good show, great music and the story of Sun Records is fascinating.

Fantastic small venue. You feel like you are in the performance. The seating is nice. I'm a big guy and got an aisle seat and was able to stretch my legs out. The musicians are fantastic. Takes you right back to the Sun Studio Days. We got there early and parked at the theater. It was $10.. Unheard of in... More

If you vist Las Vegas, make sure to see the Million Dollar Quartet at Harrahs. If you like Rock and Roll, you will love it. The musical performances are fantastic and the story is impressive. This will be the best 90 minutes you spend in Vegas.

High energy show with great music about the night Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash and Carl Perkins jammed at Sun Records Studio in 1956. Non stop entertainment, all the classics from each singer. Story line very informative about each singers history and relationship with Sam Phillips, owner of Sun Records.

My parents and I saw this show over the Thanksgiving holiday. It's a GREAT show! The theater is pretty small so you're very close to the actors and feel a part of the show. We sat in the center section. I think these are the best seats as most of the acting is done toward the front. Not so much... More

Growing up with 60s-70s Rock N Roll, I didn't think I was going to get it or enjoy it. Boy was I wrong. The talent is incredible. The acting is good but the musicianship is phenomenal. Put the two together and it is wonderful. Really tells the story of 12/2/52. Was surprised at how small the venue was.

What a fun show to watch and be a part of. The cast could not have been any better, with each performer equally talented in their own way. I cannot recommend this show, venue, and cast highly enough. The last time I walked away from a theater feeling like that was when we saw Jersey Boys.
