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.

Roxie oddly miscast,
Jul 11, 2006
reviewer: from Virginia
I have to agree with the previous reviewer from San Diego that Rita Wilson's turn as Roxie was less than exciting. I know today that 40 is the "new 20" and while Rita Wilson is a lovely woman, I thought she was indeed much too old for the role of a young, fame-hungry dancer...oh, where was the dancing??? Nearly everyone else on stage danced incredibly, but Roxie barely moved. Her voice was lovely, but she delivered all of her lines with a kind of silly smile--she was elegant and poised, even when trying to come across as vulgar. During the intermission we overheard nearly everyone around us talking about the same things: "She isn't dancing! Isn't she too old for this part?" Loved the small, intimate venue but was sorely disappointed in this latest run of what should be a dazzling show...but the lead fell flat.

Fantastic!,

reviewer: from Orlando, FL USA
I saw this show last Friday. I have seen quite a few Broadway productions and found this cast to be outstanding. The energy and stage presence of the performers was great. Rita Wilson does a great job as Roxie, especially for her Broadway debut!

Very Entertaining,

Rita Wilson may be among the lesser talented people on the stage but, she nonetheless make the whole thing work. She sings well and, her stage presence is electrifying.
