It was Elvis Presley at his most charismatic, and only a small group of fans had the privilege of being there... until now. With actor Casey Ryan as Elvis, the musical tribute show Elvis '68 relives a historic moment in music history, leather suit and all. This stage re-creation of the crooner's 1968 live comeback special explores a pivotal moment in the life and career of Elvis Presley. At the time, Elvis hadn't played a live show in seven years and his popularity was fading. But what was meant to be a safe Christmas concert turned into an intimate jam session, as Elvis and friends intercut rock 'n' roll hits with storytelling and audience interaction. Learn More

This show was fantastic! It followed the movie pretty well and there were more musical numbers than the movie which made sense because it was a musical! The music fit the flow of it really well though and it had quite a few funny moments. The actors were really great and you could tell that they were enjoying themselves as well. The theater was small which worked really well because there was not a bad seat in the house!
