Had a wonderful post-show dinner at the Italian place to the south of the Royal George. Even though we came in after the show at about 45 minutes before they closed, the staff was friendly, relaxed and the food was to die for. Two entrees, an appetizer, one drink each set us back about $75.

The weather was warm February night. I wore jeans, shirt, sweater, gym shoes and was NOT underdressed.

The show was energetic and fun from start to finish. I highly recommend this play, which is more of a concert. You will enjoy clips of 39 songs. I wanted to jump up and sing along. This play also has a lot of great laughs, pretty impressive...

Your seats are immersed in the show. The actors/vocal performers are all around you. Had a blast.

“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
