I treated my parents to this show and they both enjoyed it. They liked the performance a lot and they recommend it. They had doubts at first because the venue was small but were pleasantly surprised and delighted with the entire show.

This was REALLY good!! Again I am amazed that some of the shows out of this theater are not produced in New York. This show is better than some I've seen on Broadway

We totally loved this show! Great talent, fast-paced, interesting story line, very entertaining! The venue is so tiny you practically feel like part of the show itself - very fun!

It is a unique show, both...continued

The best Elvis musical Ive ever seen. It was a small 80 seat theater. The live music and costumes were great. Loved it!!

Another excellent Maverick Theater production, complete with great acting, fantastic music, good singing and an interesting story. Given the premise, I was expecting a little more comedy and little drama, but I'd still recommend this production...continued

Fantastic show for those who love Elvis. Great cast, good vocals, favorite songs. Nice, friendly theater-although a little hard to find and parking was a problem. Go early.

It was a can't miss show! It has been retooled since it's original production and I believe it is a much better play. Don't miss it!!
