We saw Chicago on my birthday and had a great time. I'd never seen the movie so had no idea what to expect. The songs were all great with some truly funny moments throughout the show, and the actors were fantastic. We were seated next to the aisle, four rows from the front, so we had a great view of...

I was very surprised that I wasn't very into the show throughout. Story line was alright and singing was fairly good but it had an ambience of a budget show, perhaps I was a bit tired and was harder to impress that evening. The energy from the cast was average; the two lead actresses were quite dramatic but not intriguing,... More

We've seen a few plays, but this was our first on Broadway. What a terrific play! Jennifer Nettles did a fantastic job, as did Carly Hughes! The entire cast was wonderful!! We were very happy we chose this play. The acting, dancing, and singing was top notch. We were still singing "All that Jazz" 3 hours later. Definitely recommend Chicago... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
