Six women spending a few days together in Chicago. This theatre is a small, intimate, and historic theatre....so you are up close and personal no matter where you sit. The show we saw was well worth our time and money. AND, Jerry Lee was played by the understudy that night! All four of the main characters were great as well... More

This show nis fantastic, the four of us absolutely loved it. Everything from the performers, music (they actually play) ambience of the small theater were spot on. I had read all of the reviews and was still blown away by this performance. The last few songs had everyone dancing in the isles. I am a huge music buff and found... More

The experience was great fun even though there was a sub for Elvis. Cast displayed unbounded energy, and the audience was captivated the whole 90 minutes.

Saw that this was rated #2 in Chicago things to do, so we gave it a try in mid-July. So glad we went -- thoroughly enjoyed the music and the story. Don't be put off by the appearance of the exterior (must be the reason the website has no photos of it), as the intimate theater experience makes it much... More

If you enjoy vintage rock music performed by great artists in an intimate setting, this is the play for you. The show is about an impromptu jam session in 1956 with Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, and Elvis Presley which occurred at Sun Records in Memphis, Tennessee----the only time in their careers these legends performed together. In addition... More

Loved the Apollo. There are no bad seats, small and intimate. The show was entertaining from beginning to end. Very talented actors with my favorite playing Jerry Lee Lewis, but my husband loved the guy doing Elvis.

The performers were AMAZING! the show moved quickly and the theater is just intimate enough that I thought I was right there on stage. Although it looks like parking could be a problem, it wasn't for us, wish I would have done more research on restaurants around the area since there didn't seem to be many close. Good show, we...

We went to the Million Dollar Quartet for a late afternoon performance. The venue is small and intimate you feel like you are a part of the show. Great classics from the group and a great story-line.
