Good show. Nice smaller theatre near CTA Blue Line and several inexpensive restaurants. A little overpriced though.

We caught a sneak peak of the Million Dollar Quartet at a White Sox game. The vocalist were awesome. We actually wish we had time to catch the full play! If the preview was representative of the play then it is awesome!

This show was recommended to us by the ticket agent and we were glad we went. Usually my husband would fall asleep when the lights dim but not at this show. The show was awesome. You'll be rocking and clapping your hands to the beat of the music during the 90 minutes.

So entertaining!!!!--the ninety minutes passed way too quickly. This is a great show for all ages --people couldn't sit still during the performance --everyone was moving to the music. Absolutely fabulous!!!

Matinee, great music, easy to reach by EL Train from our hotel downtown. We had seen this show several years ago and loved the high level of talent and the music so much, we decided to see it again when we were in town. It's a must-see!

Amazing show. We had front row seats, 4 feet from the performers. I took my elderly mom, and she said this show was better than when she saw Elvis Presley live many years ago!! Such a fun night and so glad to be able to take my mom.

Heads up you may walk right past the Apollo theatre but don't let this deceive you, because inside in a great little theatre that is very comfy and don't think there is a bad seat in whole place!! And the show was INCREDIBLE!!!

Smiled through this whole performance. Loved the true-to-life story. Jerry Lee Lewis performance was quite a surprise - outstanding!

My husband and I went to see this. It was very entertaining from beginning to end. Lots of energy on that stage, it keeps you captivated. They are so so incredibly talented! I did buy the CD, but it doesn't do the show justice.

If you like rock 'n' roll, don't miss this. It's an education on the beginnings of rock 'n' roll, but most importantly, it's a huge amount of fun. The musicians are first class, the songs are great (and almost continuous). High energy, great music, great fun.
