We just loved this show! The performances are great. I can't wait to see these actors in future shows as well. We are even going to try to see it again if we can fit it in. Highly recommend it!

“A first-rate ensemble rocks and rolls through the Leiber and Stoller catalog in a powerhouse revue revival.” –_Time Out Chicago _
“A night well spent, especially when the singers are as strong and enthusiastic as the very game emerging talents belting out the likes of ‘Kansas City’ and ‘Poison Ivy’ … A retro party night … these performers deliver a fine way to forget the stresses of the week.” —Chicago Tribune
