CHICAGO IN BOSTON

I saw the play for the 4th time in Boston on Sunday,November4th. It was the best version I have seen to date,Twice in Boston, once regional and one in NYC. Yes, Christy Brinky can not sing,(she held a tune) act or dance, however, she is so darn sweet and beautiful, her looks played the part. John Hurley was a wonderful Billy Flynn, his signing was in tune and his dancing was, well, Billy Flynn-ish. A Razzle Dazzler! The music was spot on and just so Jazzy. The supporting cast was beautiful to watch. They are strong in their dance, song and acting. The jury , what a hoot! That was the funnyest part of the show. My only regret is that Amos should have worn the bolla hat for his song. That would have completed his outfit and added to the look of the routine. I give this show a BIG FAT 4 stars, well done!

CAST WAS SUPERB!

I attended the Sunday April 15 2018 show at the Scranton cultural Center. In short, the cast and staging were wonderful. The SOUND left much to be desired. For a good 25- 30% of the show you could barely hear what the performers were singing. Whether it was an issue with the mixing or the on-stage orchestra was just too loud it marred an otherwise spectacular performance. I will say this was the first time sound was an issue for me at this venue.

AVERAGE

I thought the singing was good. But I was disappointed in the set and costumes. The dancing also left a bit to be desired. For what I paid to go to this show, I did expect a little production value.

NOTHING LIKE THE ORIGINAL

Chicago is a great musical. However, this Broadway Across America production leaves a lot to be desired. Both female leads were awfully weak and, sadly, they are not particularly good dancers. How well I remember the original and the revival (seen 3 times each on Broadway) and there is simply NO comparison. John O'Hurley is quite good as Billy Flynn. He actually came the closest to really capturing the flavor of the show. And, oh, they messed up the choreography something fierce! Yes, it's still worth seeing as it's difficult to destroy this show. But, a major disappoinment!

CHICAGO - LESS RAZZLE DAZZLE

Wife and I went to see opening night. In short it was a pale comparison to the NYC and Movie version. Most main characters lacked real pop and believability. John Hurley, the male character of Billy Flynn was the only exception. John added his own flavor to the character and was outstanding and enjoyable to watch. Mama Morton, played by veteran Carol Woods was more wooden than Matron. I'm pretty sure that character is supposed to move when on stage ... not just sing (which she does well). The other characters tried to add their own flavor but,they just weren't consistent with the character. The lighting guy was on another page most the night and missed many que's and had the spot on wrong people. I suggest, stay home, rent the movie, pop some corn and save on the drink prices. You'll enjoy it more. .

DISAPPOINTING

Christie Brinkley does not have the voice or dance skill to do justice to the role of Roxy. The rest of the cast was fantastic and they carried the show. I would love to see it again with a professional singer and dancer playing Roxy.

PAINFULLY DULL.

We thought intermission would never come, and when it did, we left. Apparently there were others that shared our sentiment. I saw about 25 others departing from the same exit heading for the parking garage. I actually saw 2 couples leave during the show. Definitely a disappointment.
