Great show, cramped theatre

The show was wonderful, amazing singers and dancers but the theatre itself was small, hot and the seats were cramped.

Great cast, all awesome singers, I could not pick one favorite, since they all did such an amazing job in every character. Very entertaining story with beautiful songs. I would watch it again.

I was very unimpressed with the status of the theater, old, seats are absolutely uncomfortable and the staff are very unwelcoming, while it has been a running show for many years l, but clearly the production is below average and old Clearly they are milking franchise with no intent to either upgrade the production We literally had to leave after...

Loved this show - pared back and dynamic electric singing and slick dance performance by main and support roles with orchestra and conductor participation as a full part of the performance - fabulous 😁

We booked this show thinking this would be a real show stopper what we got was a low budget regular show we could have seen anywhere. Veronica dunne who played Roxy was sickly sweet and not at all the hard edged actress that you would expect in this role.The stage was tiny and the orchestra who I have to say... More

When in New York a show on Broadway is a must. Great show with a fabulous cast. Get tickets discounted at the ticket booth(besides stairs) at 3 pm on words for evening shows.

Thoroughly enjoyed the show. The dancers were very talented, the music was great too. The storyline was funny and entertaining. It flowed well and at no time was disappointed in anyway. This was the first Broadway show I had seen so I left a happy customer. Bought two for one tickets so was well worth the experience.

Vey disappointed. Bought tickets at the tkts booth in times square but they were still £62.00 each for 3 of us including an under 12yr old. Theatre was very small & uncomfortable. Edinburgh playhouse is far superior in every way. Orchestra was in the middle of the stage so a very scaled down production. For a broadway musical it wasn't... More

If you like all dancing and singing, this is for you. We would have probably enjoyed it more if it was not so Hot and stuffy. Also very tall people in front of us. The orchestra was AMAZING and really enjoyed them. Overall it was ok. Reminded me a lot of Cabaret.

We booked to see Chicago as part of a week long trip to visit our daughter, who's studying in New York. Every year since she was 6, a trip to the West End in London has been part of her birthday gift, so this year, her 20th, a visit to Broadway was a must. This was possibly the most disappointed...

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
