The musical, considered too dark when it failed in 1975, today seems right in keeping with hard-learned cynicism about the American justice system.

Lacked Passion,
Nov 25, 2011
reviewer: from New York
My daughter and I came from Australia to see Chicago on Broadway - where the place dreams are made of! We almost had that dream! The show started off without life or passion. I share some of the earlier reviewers remarks that they looked tired and old. So unfortunate. The good news is that the cast gained energy as the show progressed. But I wouldn't recommend it to friends. So sorry to say. :(

Chicago on Broadway,
Nov 03, 2011
reviewer: from New York
This was my 1st time in New York and the theatre, so wasn't too sure what to expect. The theatre was a little cramped We were in row A on mezz in centre, providing excellent stage views. The stage appeared a little bland. Just the orchestra stack in the centre, but this was not a problem as it provided a backdrop to the play. The cast and orchestra were fantastic. Keeping the audiences attention from start to finish. My personal favourite being Chris Sullivan as Amos, the poor, husband of Roxy Hart. I would thoroughly recommend Chicago to anyone wanting to visit a broadway show. Next time I visit the theatre, I hope the experience is as enjoyable as this one.

Not so fabulous,
Oct 13, 2011
reviewer: from Canada
I was so looking forward to this show, but honestly, I sat there bored. I felt like there was no energy to the show, the cast was just going through the motions. I regret going because it's all I think about when I hear the soundtrack

Paint The Town... With Chicago,
Mar 19, 2011
reviewer: from Austin, Texas
Hello. I saw "Chicago" for the first time on 3-17-11. It was a fabulous experience! The singing and dancing were first-rate. It's one thing to see video clips of the show online. But to see it in person is a magical moment. I was seated in the front row. Leigh Zimmerman (Velma) and Dylis Croman (Roxie) were A MA zing!! I'm especially familiar with the songs "All That Jazz" and "Nowadays / Hot Honey Rag". The Men of Chicago were also fantastic...especially two of the guys: Ryan Lowe and Jason Patrick Sands. Each did their part with great fervor and energy. Other shows rely on people floating in the air and doing acrobatics. Chicago's approach is pretty simple: sing it well, dance it with precision and act the heck out of the part. After the show, I took pics with Ryan, Leigh and Jason. They were ever so nice! Next time I'm in NYC, I will definitely see "Chicago" again. P.S. Thanks to Leigh Zimmerman for throwing me a red rose, at the end of the show. You're a doll!
