We went to this on the recommendation of a friend. I'm not the biggest fan of any of the celebrities shown in this, but it was a fun night and the singers all did really well to portray who they were meant to be. Elvis...More

Maybe opt for just the show rather than the ones with a meal.. The theatre is small enough for a good view so I'm sure he will enjoy it
