I came to this show with big expectations since I'm a big fan of the movie Chicago. By no means am I an expert at theater or Broadway productions, but I was expecting a huge cast, tons of set and costume changes, and all in all just a lot more. The venue itself was nice.

I thought it would be one of the straight musicals but is is full of fun and you can expect a good time on it. Much better than I anticipated and it´s worth it. One of the longest Broadway shows.

We were moved forwards to get better seats that were available, the show was brilliant - but as it was our first night here we were very jet lagged and half asleep due to the 5 hour time difference! It still kept us awake and we enjoyed it thoroughly.

A must see while you are in New York, simply fabulous. I would certainly recommend this show and location.

It was with some trepidation that I went to see Chicago, a musical not on my must list whilst in NY. However, I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised. Don't believe the negative press, Chicago is refreshingly different from the usual overly saccharine coated musicals around today. It's song and dance with intelligence, creativity and style.

I went with my 12 years old daughter to the Musical Chicago, it was the first of 4 musicals we scheduled to see. I love to see the 15 musicians on stage and not somewhere underground of the scene ! The dancers and singers were absolutely amazing. I recommend the show to everybody.

Growing up in theatre and enjoying the fine arts, I was excited about going to see Chicago on Broadway. What a major disappointment. Just wasn't impressed with the cast or the production. Very odd having the orchestra onstage. So many shows to see here and I wasted my money on this one.

As broadway virgins, we wanted to see a show, so we went to the Tkts booth at 2pm for discounted tickets. We had good seats too! The show was better than the film, and I love the film! Worth every single penny

Chicago is the story of a married woman who kills her lover because he's going to dump her. You meet one other main jail bird lady and there is competition between them about who can drum up the most public attention and sympathy for their case, with the help of their wily lawyer. Leading women were excellent! Roxy's fitness level... More

Everyone needs to get their ticket for this awesome show. Ultra professionalism on every level. The stage lighting to the sound system to the sexy actors on stage.. never missing a cue or beat. This show has it all. Humor, scandal, campy fun, and lots of great music.. This is a winner hands down. You won't regret it. Go see... More
