Honestly, it wasn't what I expected. The overall storyline of the play itself was interesting, but how it was presented on stage wasn't as good as it could have been in my opinion. There wasn't any prop/scene changes nor costume change either. It made it kind of hard to completely understand exactly what was going on as everything looked the... More

I'm not sure if this is because it's an older show, but I have to say it was quite underwhelming. The cast was perfectly fine, the actresses playing Velma and Roxie were quite talented. However, the show lacked the razzle dazzle. There was no set to speak of, the orchestra takes up most of the stage, leaving the show itself... More

The show was wonderful. We really enjoyed it. It was two of the three of us first experience on Broadway. In terms of the theater- there were definitely not enough bathrooms. Wine was over priced, but we expected that.

The performers were spot on, the band was even better. What a fantastic production! The lack of set was disturbing at first, but the performers make up for it manyfold and the interaction with the band was unusual but effective.
