Watching Chicago on stage was on my Bucket List ever since I watched the movie. Could cross it off during a recent visit to NY, and I must say I am thrilled! It's a very small cast (and of course, the amazing orchestra) who rotate around various different roles (albeit wearing the same clothes) and they were all great in... More

Show...... No set changes, no costume changes, no razzle dazzle. Production set cost zero, not what you expect from a Broadway show. Acting was exaggerated- made me cringe a little. Still enjoyed the show as the dancing and singing made up for the over acting and Limited set. Theatre... Small and old, no extravagance, no beauty! Limited toilets... During the... More

The show and especially the cast was great. The stage is fairly simple, which just after seeing Wicked I almost expected the stage to move around and such but it's not that type of show. Which is fine because it is the broadway musical that i'd expect it to be. The drinks however are insanely expensive; but you probably already... More

I love the movie so always wanted to see the show live. Brandy is a childhood favorite of mine and she was amazing, as were the entire cast. A very entertaining show from start to end.

I am a fan of the movie but this was on a completely different level. Brandy is awesome in the role of Roxie Hart, sweet, funny and with a wonderful voice. The rest of the cast are also extremely talented (and gorgeous). It was an amazing show.

On my second night in New York and after watching A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder the previous night, I watched Chicago featuring Brandy as Roxy Hart. I have watched the film version years ago and I must admit I liked the film version more than the live musical play version because the film characters seem more coherent and... More

Chicago is a classic, so who could not love it, but the performance Brandy delivered was bar none the best I have seen ever on Broadway. She brought her whole heart and soul to her work on 7/7 performance, that's for sure. It had me in stitches, in tears, and left me feeling like a very lucky guy indeed to... 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.
