We thought we would see Rumer Willis in her second night as Roxy but she was delayed starting. The sub was a veteran of the show who looks a bit like Nicole Kidman and was terrific just the same. We got discounted tickets through NYTix and sat in the front row for $100 a seat including taxes and fees. What... More

Amazing amazing amazing!!! Gripping from the onset. This legendary Broadway show will captivate you right from the start. Thoroughly entertaining. There is some profanity but nothing too bad. I would say try to be seated downstairs as upstairs is definitely more of a birds eye view. The seating is unfortunately uncomfortable. The seats small and legroom are is a no... More

Half way through the first act, I remember thinking to myself "maybe there's a better production out there." And then it struck me... Oh wait, this is Broadway. This is not what we expected out of a Broadway show. We paid $150 for tickets, that were discounted 50%! It seems as if the production is now spending very little money,... More

If you're looking for the best musical Broadway has to offer, you've found it. Chicago combines the sexual appeal of the 1920s (most women wore very little clothing, most men wore shirts that showed their chests in one way or another) with a beautiful soundtrack and sensational storyline. Perhaps I'm simply brainwashed by the musical experience that is Chicago, but... More

Coming from Aus..this was a must do for us and I was incredibly pleased and delighted to experience this show in NY city. Definitely an occasion we will always remember..the theatre..now that was pretty disappointing. We had a relatively good view but I personally think it should be a mandatory rule that women can't put their hair up! 😁😊 Boofy... More

Saw it with Brandy in the lead role with Amra Faye Wright. Amazing experience with great music and story line.Had seen the movie years back and felt the show was even better.Natasha Yvette Williams as mama Morton and R Lowe as Mary sunshine are a must see.

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.
