But steadily, Chicago is making a strong name for itself with its own impressive lineup of shows gracing its growing theater scene. And why shouldn’t it? With the city’s gorgeous and historical theaters, amazing views, great shopping, delectable food, and beautiful hotels, Chicago is the perfect place to wine, dine, and enjoy an incredible show or two. Famous Broadway shows like Wicked, The Lion King, and Book of Mormon have graced Chicago with incredible sold-out performances, leaving viewers begging for more.

A powerfully charged musical described as a “smash hit,” this show was inspired by the infamous first and only time musical recording session that took place in 1956 between Jerry Lewis, Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, and Carl Perkins. This show will revive your musical soul. It’s now playing at the Apollo Theater.
