CHICAGO - THE MUSICAL

Now showing, Open Run

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

ALL RIGHT ON THE NIGHT !!!!!,
May 17, 2007
reviewer: from Ashbourne, Derbyshire England
Having seen CHICHAGO in UK last month took a chance to witness the BROADWAY production on mon 14 May and was not disappointed!!It was great having orchestra centre stage with such an energetic conductor as LESLIE STIFELMAN costumes were great, singing special note must be given to R LOWE as Miss Sunshine what a voice!The cast were on fire but the sound when acting didnt always reach my ears on row D IN THE UPPER Circle hope production side will sit up there and rectify it for future visitors !!Loved the shabby chic of the ambassador theatre and the kindness of the staff it was so welcoming please dont change it. Highlight as we left, chatting to musician who was packing away his violin . A good night in New York for a first time visitor.

more costume and scene changes,
Apr 02, 2007
reviewer: from USA
For $134 per seat each for a family of 3, I had expected more costume and scenery changes. The music and dancing were great while the plot as usual is silly, I had expected more from what I have been used to from many other Broadway productions. It was just not worth it!

The show was amazing... and all that jazz!,
Apr 01, 2007
reviewer: from Anytown, AT 55555
I loved the show! Bebe Neuwirth is so talented, and it made my day seeing her on stage! It proves how great of an actress she is, because you would never know this was the same woman who played Lilith on Cheers!! I heart her!!!! Brenda Braxton was amazing, too!! She's very inspiring! The whole cast just gave a killer (haha) performance!! 5 stars isn't enough!! I'd give oodles more!

Chicago is A MUST SEE!!!,
Dec 21, 2006
reviewer: from New York City
I saw Chicago 2 days ago in New York and I can't stop thinking about it. I play the songs over and over again on my iPod. I thought the performance was amazing. It was fun and cute and I had a great time. Michelle Dejean is absolutely AMAZING as Roxie Hart. I loved her performance. I also couldn't help but notice Shawn Emamjomeh's performance as the Jury, it was great! The overall cast performance was fantastic. R. Lowe was brillant. Thanks for the good time.

Great night being seated and sitting.,
Nov 28, 2006
reviewer: from Williamsport, PA
The show was excellent but I was as impressed by the usher who assisted an elderly women find a seat that did not require her to climb three difficult flights of stairs. Who expects any one to make an extra effort and provide consideration? Bravo the show and bravo the staff.
