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!

2.5 star rating Vicki Sands 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.

2.5 star rating E. Akers from Kennebunk, Maine


Unfortunately, if you put a mediocre performer next to phenomenal performers, she's going to look even worse than she is. Roxy was played by Michelle Williams (the least known Destiny's Child member) and she was beyond awful. The woman can't dance and can't act. Other than that, the show was great. Velma was amazing as were all the chorus members. I would have given it higher than 2.5 stars if Michelle Williams hadn't dragged the show down so much. If I were visiting NY, I would wait until they had someone else playing Roxy before buyint tickets to see chicago.

I saw this show last weekend with my boyfriend and was very disappointed! The cast is small, there were no change of costumes... It seemed as though it was a low budget show! I would not recommend seeing this!

2.0 star rating Camo 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. :(

2.0 star rating Disapointed in NY from New York, New York


Was very disapointed with the show, lack of costume change, no backdrops, band on stage. It made for disapointing birthday night! I wished I would have read the reviews before attending the show, I would have picked something else to see. It was not worth the money or my time.

1.5 star rating Deeners 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
