I've seen over a dozen shows at the Maverick, but this was unlike any of them. This was really more of a concert (performed "in the round") with a little bit of background narrative to explain the time frame, conflicts, decisions and results obtained from this concert.
The Elvis performer was very talented and enjoyable to watch! I found myself closing my eyes a few times to try and imagine what it would have been like to have been there (without seeing people taking flash pictures and filming videos with their cell phones in the audience).
There were only a couple minor things I'd change: (1) the two acts, with a 15 minute intermission, was only 90 minutes, so I was left with wanting to hear more songs and/or more background stories (2) the narrator was reading a few of his lines off a cue sheet, which was not to the high standards I've come to expect of the Maverick :-)
Still, I'd recommend this to anyone who is a fan of Elvis and/or that era of music. I had a great time!

Had a double date and we loved it. We all shared what we know about the 'King' and loved the talent of the actor. The narrative format worked really well. The Maverick is such a fun theater, and the employees help make it so.
