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

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!

AWESOME SEATS at Broadway's Song & Dance CLASSIC!,
Feb 02, 2011
reviewer: from New York, NY
BEST show on Broadway! We got orchestra seats for 50 bucks, without standing in line at the booth. There's a great website for discount seats to the show - - get your tickets there, and have a blast at this awesome show! We LOVED the legendary music of Kander & Ebb, and Fosse's choreography.

"Oh what a show",
Sep 08, 2010
reviewer: from Yorkshire England
On the 22nd July 2010, my wife and i went to see chicago on the day we were married. Oh what a day, oh what a show!!!! Ruthie Henshall was magnificent as Roxy. Amra Fay-Wright was superlative in the role of Velma, and John O'Hurley as Billy Flynn was unbeatable. There were no elaborate scene changes, no flashy costumes. The show relied entirely on the talent contained within it, and it paid off in spades. WORLD, GO SEE IT.
