Overview

The longest-running American musical on Broadway, and winner of multiple prestigious awards, “Chicago” is a 1920s-inspired show that features themes of greed, murder, manipulation and fame. The legendary musical showcases two rival prison inmates whose money-hungry lawyer turns their incarcerations into a circus of sorts, complete with big jazz numbers, catchy songs and a scandalously fun plot.

"Weak production"

I have seen Chicago several times and this was really weak. This is a Bob Fosse dance production and he is turning in his grave (or his ashes are). The dancers ought to be young, lithe, and in shape. The men and women were chunky and a distraction not the center of action. Velma was old and over the hill, Roxy had a weak voice and,was,too giggly. Billy wasn't a dancer at all. In the movie, Richard Gere was much better with his dancing. I understand the reporter is a transvestite singer, but this one was just awful. We left at intermission We did see Hamilton, School of Rock, and Waitress on this visit to NYC so we only had to kiss one frog on the way to 3 prince charmings.

It is a must see. Yes the theater is older and not too comfortable, but the play was wonderful! The music was great and the acting was great. I would see it again.

"Glorious, Naughty Fun"

This is the longest running revival in Broadway history for a good reason. This show shines despite a lack of a fancy set, fancy costumes, etc. The story, music, characters carry the day, as they should. Way funnier than the film version, this show continues to please year after year. I'm glad I went back to see it after several years.
