Great show! The theatre is relatively small, so all seats are good. The size (or lack of size) helped to keep the intimate atmosphere. The leads were amazing and all very friendly after the performance.

We had great tickets. Super show. Made my young daughter very happy. Highly recommended. Catch it before it finally closes. Right in the middle of the theatre district, so easy to find.

This musical is very 'music' oriented, with the orchestra occupying the center of the stage. So don't expect set changes or other 'theatral' elements. Good music, great dancing, a very thin story but with some tongue in cheek humour. We liked it a lot!

Small theater so could see everything and and loved the music. Discount tickets from showgirls in Times Square meant we got great seats at an affordable price.

I've seen 4 Broadway productions this year (Billy Elliott in London, Wicked in New York and Book of Mormon in Portland). Chicago was a close second to Billy Elliott and I was so impressed with the talented Bianca Marroquin. I have not seen the movie, Chicago so I don't have a point of reference as to how well the story... More

My wife would rate this as excellent but this is my review not hers! The theatre is small but the intimacy had a positive impact. The performers were good first half but much better second half. If you go to see a Broadway show then Chicago won't disappoint.

Well after all those years of success the musical Chicago kept the reputation of one of the biggest. I guess the actors change since the beginning but you feel that enthusiasm is here. Music dance blah bla and humour are met. I can say that I saw it.

NOT all the things we hold near and dear in a Broadway production. July 23 matinee show Bianca, Terra, Paul and Brent you did little more than string together your bits. You mostly looked like tired warhorses merely going through the motions when hit with the spotlight. The Roxy monologue and the "Class" duet had some oomph but the rest... More
