September 13 - October 29, 2017

Chicago's Paramount Theatre kicks off its 2017/18 Broadway series with a staging of the Tony Award-winning smash! A true definition of the jukebox musical, MDQ recreates that famed jam session between four of music's most extraordinary talents - Elvis Presley, Jonny Cash, Carl Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis. This one-time only, electrifying performance gave us some of rock's most memorable songs, as well as a unique glance into the lives and personalities of people known previously only through musical fame.

Elf: The Musical is the hilarious tale of Buddy, a young orphan who accidentally crawls into Santa's sack of gifts and is taken to the North Pole. Buddy is raised unaware that he is actually a human, until his enormous size and poor toy-making abilities cause him to face the truth. The heartwarming musical follows Buddy on his quest for his real family, as well as bringing much-needed Christmas spirit to the city of New York.
