Just off Broadway and the theatre is small - so nice and cosy - but the queues for the toilets at the interval were just so long :( Anyhow, there were three of us with only one recommending a return visit. And this was with 50% ticket prices !

We have now since Chicago on broadway three times over several years and there's not much more to say than it is simply brilliant. The music and choreography are great and If you like musicals you just have to see it

I do not want to harp----but please make sure you have absolutely no other options before you decide to pay a single dollar. sorry again for the workers, but this is REALLY bad, unless you have never seen anything on Broadway maybe. this is...

The actors were quite good but the scenography is simple and cheap. You would expect more considering the price of the tickets and from a big city like NYC! You wonder if it's just a another tourist trap. I wasn't impressed.

We wanted something that wasn't on the west end so Chicago seemed the best option- queued up with tkts for about an hour and got good ish seats for the price- Broadway in general is very expensive compared to west end which isn't cheap itself! Would definitely recommend classic musical! Only thing that wasn't so good was they made you... More

My fiancé is a huge fan of musical. So we decided to go see Chicago as it's one of her favourite. I didn't expect to enjoy it. But I did. I loved it. Great actors, great mood and what an energy! One of the best stuff I did in New York. You can get half-priced ticket at the TKS booth... More

This wasn't my favourite musical on Broadway. I found the theatre crammed and uncomfortable which made the show seem really long. I also found the costumes lacking (in more ways than one) and the set to be very simple and a little drab. There's a lot more they could of done to jazz it up.

This is only my 2nd broadway show, so I dont have much to compare, but I was pleasantly surprised! Prior to the show I really didnt know much about Chicago except that a movie was made in which Catherine Zeta Jones played some sort of lead role. Didnt even really know what the plot was about. Perhaps this is what... More
