I love Chicago the movie, but had never seen it on Broadway. My girlfriend and I finally got to see and I wanted to love it. But we were SOOO disappointed.

My friend and I watched this show for the first time back a few years ago on broadway. We are happy to say we were not disappointed. I am lucky enough to have seen over 8 musicals now and would still say this was by far the best! Would highly recommend.

This play is a must see. Very Entertaining and funny. Theater is small so no matter what seat you pick, your close to the stage. Only drawback is restrooms are up the stairs and their was always a long line for the women's.

What a fantastic experience - we booked the evening before at the theatre box office and managed to get fantastic seats 4 rows from the front for a big discount? The show was incredible and was one of our major highlights to this exhilarating city!

The show was really good but the seats were so cramped that the man in the row in front of me had his head on my knee. The tickets were $100 each from the discount stand so we expected far better seats for the money.

This wouldn't normally be my cup of tea but the dancers were outstanding and all very talented! A little twist at the end to tickle the mind. My mum loved it, would recommend to go and see!

This 18 year old production of Chicago is showing its age... the music, songs, dance and staging are all still there, but there is an impression of fatigue in the show that is disappointing.
