  • If you require a lot of scenery and costume changes, this may not be for you. I loved the choreography and really enjoyed it. Middle, front row balcony were great seats BUT cramped leg room if you.....  more »
  • This show was disappointingly lack-luster. I wish I’d read the other reviews first because the recent ones are accurate. The show is quiet, boring and very unspectacular. We left at intermission. We.....  more »

  • Extremely disappointing. The cast are too old (although enthusiastic) to charge over $130USD per ticket. I have seen this show in Melbourne and London and it is sensational, sadly however the Broadway cast were very ordinary. The band were great though, but the singing and dancing was very basic - high school standard. We left at interval, I couldn’t have the NY cast ruin one of my favourite musicals
  • Small lobby and not enough bathrooms. Which I guess is pretty normal for an old theater. Classic old theater with beautiful chandelier. Chicago wasn't my favorite musical and thought a few roles could have been cast better. However the Male and female lead were great.
  • Three words: not worth it. A world-class play but a small-town-nightclub-standard performance. Small theatre for Hobbits with uncomfortably compact seating. Aging cast that lacks energy and passion. No contrast between Velma and Roxie--just two grandma-aged women in their mid-to-late 50s who fight declining stamina and try painstakingly to earn bread. Billy Flynn appears to be anything but that charming, smart, greedy, capable and yet cocky lawyer. Amos is about right. Mary Sunshine is a surprise. What a drag! Overall, this should not be performed on Broadway as we pay $100+ and expect world-class shows. I have enjoyed 3 other shows, but this one is a huge disappointment!
  • A really good show, with some great performers. The only downside was a VERY eager staff member. The tall, slim gentleman was running around telling people to be quiet and take off their hats ahead of the performance. He was obviously keen to make sure it wasn't spoiled for others. HOWEVER, this guy couldn't sit still through the performance and kept on standing up to check for any illegal hat wearing :-) Every time he stood up, he blocked our view of the stage and distracted us.
  • The show was fantastic! Our seats were in a great spot. I had a smile on ny face almost the entire time. This was my first broadway show, and I was not disappointed! The entire cast, especially the lead, did an amazing job. I would see this one again if I ever have the chance
