You cannot go to New York and not see Chicago absolutely Superb. Fabulous story and cast that at times has you on the edge of your seat. A fanatic musical that enriches the history of this state.

I have seen this musical before in the West End and seen the film and so love the music. Felt Roxy was a little lack lustre and to say the lady who played Velma has been doing this for so long to me it looked a little more like drag (nothing wrong with drag if that's what i've paid for)... More

Simple, basic but VERY Broadway..Sounds weird but I thought it was a classy performance for a risque show. Very comfortable to watch and listen to the performers sing and dance..

A good night out and great value for money. I bought tickets for me and the GF from the TKTS booth on Times Square and got 50% off. Definitely worth a ten minute wait in a cold queue.

My mum booked us front row seats a while back, so seeing Chicago was a highly anticipated part o our trip! What can I say? It was stunning! We were up close and personal with the performers, which were a little risque, but my fiance and I really enjoyed the show. Our seats were excellent - we were front row... More

First experience of "Broadway" but been to the West End often. Thought it was fantastic. Quirky having the orchestra in the middle of the stage but worked well. Performances were spot on to me..especially Mr Cellophane! Staff can by surly but I guess they'r just doing their job. Drinks not cheap and bathroom lines were long! Definitely a must-see.

I've had the pleasure of enjoying a number of Broadway musicals. Chicago is a classic with fabulous music and choreography. The theater is also small offering fantastic seats anywhere in the building. We were also lucky to get 2nd row seats during the busy New Year's week by going through the TKTS booth in Time Square. The cast was very... More

If you are going to see one Broadway Show, see this one. Great show. I love the music, the lyrics, the choreography. Very stylish, very rhythmical, very Newyork-ish.
