Very enjoyable show, great singing, dancing and acting. We got the tickets same morning with 40% discount. Drinks and snacks are available, but a bottle of water costs 5$ and Pringles is also 5$. Judged by our experience you could take your own water and chips there and save some costs... The intermission is short and the line is long... More

Wonderful show! Very talented cast. We had front row, center seats and while that our view was great, I'm not sure I would recommend sitting that closely. When the actors projected their voices we saw spittle flying through the air and often felt the need to duck to avoid being hit.

The day before seeing this, I saw Kinky Boots. I would definitely pick Kinky Boots over this. I would never say this was a bad show however and did certainly enjoy it. About two months prior, I saw Wicked on tour and it was amazing, beats out both in my opinion. Again, I'd recommend all three of these shows however.... More

This was an amazing show! It was my first Broadway show in NYC! I am a Communication/Theater major and was extremely impressed. We were seated in Row D and I could not have asked for better seats! The performance was just wonderful! The theater was just the right size...I loved how intimate it felt. Loved that the theater was a... More

Saw Chicago in Toronto on Sat. afternoon. Didn't know ahead of time that the orchestra took up most of the stage, therefore there was no scenery. The whole play takes place in front of the band and there were no costume changes either. The music was good, dance numbers were great, but as mentioned before, it seemed laclustre compared to...

The show was great, the singers and dancers were amazing. We had our tickets from TKTS, so there were lots of tourists (like us) in the venue. The theatre was not full and the ushers a bit grumpy. It was a fun experience for a first Broadway show!

As my title reveals, this is a big no go. This was my first Broadway experience ever and it was truly disappointing. I can't put my finger on what it is that I disliked so much about the show, but I believe I used the word "plain" as we left the theatre. I even left it in what seemed to... More

We saw it in the Ambassador Theater which gave extra charm to the play because it's from the same era. Bathrooms were small and limited however. The show was wonderful. The quality of the acting and the music (musicians are right on stage) was amazing and we could not have asked for a better experience. We bought our tickets through... More
