This was such a brilliant musical! This is the only one I have seen n Broadway, I would love to see more! It was funny, classy, the seating was great, I had a great view of the stage. All in all, it was such a great show that had my attention through the entire performance!

Flawless! The political satire of the Prohibition Era was so appropriate even today. It is not a rolling in the aisles comedy but rather dramatic political satire. The iconic Fosse choreography and the music were absolutely the best. We loved it! Every performer was perfection.

Great music, fabulous dancing... the show was great but the seating at the Ambassador Theatre was awful. The smallest seat space I've ever experienced and I'm only small. My feet were cramped and the man alongside me had to leave part way through because he just didn't fit in the allocated space.

I saw Chicago in San Francisco and the production was larger. The overall dancing and sets took up a much larger stage. This theater is smaller, which brought us much closer to the performers. That was pretty cool. The performer who played Roxy was adorable and delightful. She was cute and sassy and did a great job. Was not a... More

I've seen Chicago on stage several times and Bianca Marroquin nailed it! She had great comic timing and really sold the part. Generally, the staging was great and the dance numbers were solid. There were 4 swings on stage for the production we saw and we wouldn't have known - great job! The only thing that was a little disappointing... More

I will admit that I've never seen the movie or the show and besides the "all that jazz"song, I've never heard the music. No, I've not been under a rock as my niece, who is a huge fan of the movie and the music, seemed to think. I've seen several Broadway shows I just never had an interest in this... More
