Million Dollar Quartet
October 29, 2017

11.2.17  Wanted to tell you that the Million Dollar Quartet Show was better than the last one. I liked this Jerry Lee lots better than the last one and I really liked this theater and the seats were great.  Barb & Roger F.

 

We thought we would try another theatre which is a bit closer to home, where we don't have to struggle with the Chicago traffic.  We found Paramount Theatre in Aurora, Illinois to be a lovely theatre comparable to The Morris in South Bend and the Lerner in Elkhart. 

First was lunch server at Ballydoyle's in Aurora.  I liked the way they served lunch, giving us a nice variety.  My only problem with them was they only had 1 waitress assigned to our group of 41 people.  Our salads were on the table and we served ourselves at the buffet, but the waitress supplied the drinks, which I don't feel was enough wait-staff for the number of people.

We then boarded the bus for the theatre, which was only 2 blocks away, but a distance more on foot, since it was on the other side of the Fox River, accessible via a footbridge.  The theatre is a lovely older ornate theatre.  Unloading the bus was very convenient, as they had a section blocked off right in front of the theatre for us.

This was the 5th time I had seen Million Dollar Quartet and don't think I would ever tire of it.  I never thought the performance at The Apollo in Chicago could be surpassed, but I do believe the performance at the Paramount did just that.  The young man who portrayed Jerry Lee Lewis was outstanding and the scenery was a tad bit more upscale.  The entire show was over the top! 

Though pictures are not allowed, I did snap a couple.  I wish they could have been better, but at this point of the show, everyone was standing and jumping and the photo police were observant - giving me a tap on the shoulder.

A group photo of as many as I could fit into the picture while waiting for the bus to pick us up.  A great time was had by all!
