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
