I LOVE IT!

This version of "Chicago" is one of the best productions of all. How could anyone who loves musical theatre deny it?

5.0 star rating Jamie from Toronto, Ontario

SUPER

I have seen Chicago on three different occasions, in three different cities and this cast was the best I have seen. There was tons of energy and enthusiasm from each cast member---it was clear they enjoyed the show themselves and that energy translated to the performance----and it was much funnier than any other iteration of the show. I would see it again in a flash!

MY LOVE FOR CHICAGO

I, like so many others, have only seen the movie version of Chicago, but last night's show was absolutely amazing!!!!! All of the actors/actresses where on their game and it was a night I will never forget!!!! I hope to see it again and again! Was very much worth the money to see! Fantastic!

CHICAGO MUSICAL @ FISHET THEATER IN DETROIT, MI - BEST SHOW!

I attended the Chicago Musical @ Fisher theater in Detroit, MI on 12-Feb-16 and it is the best musical production I have ever seen. All thanks to the outstanding performance of the cast. Fabulous/fun/sexy !!! The choreography/dancing and singing is the best production ever. What a great honor for the Fisher theater to host this musical. Don't miss this opportunity to go see it. Don't mind the weather, it will get 'warm' inside.

CHICAGO IN DETROIT

My 13yo son and I saw CHICAGO yesterday ay the Fisher theater---amazing. We really enjoyed the show. After we went to the stage door for my son to get autographs of the cast. The actors were all very kind and he was able to get his program signed. Excellent experience.

CHICAGO

This was an awesome version of the show. It had great singing , dancing and music. It was funny and entertaining. Best of all was the enthusiasm of the cast. No matter where you looked on the stage the cast members seemed to be genuinely enjoying performing. The leads were top, top shelf. The theatre is beautiful and seating provided great views. Don't miss it!!

CREAM RISES TO THE TOP.

Let's start at the bottom; the actors supporting the leads are some of the best I've ever seen. Special kudos to Paul Vogt, who plays the gullible, sweet and sad clown husband of Roxie Hart, Amos "Mr. Cellophane". Mr. Vogt, you need your own show. And Alexa Lowis's Hungarian "Hunyak" was the most heart-wrenching characterization of that doomed character I've ever seen. Ms. Fouche's "Momma" the jailhouse fixer was superb and man, can she belt out a tune. The leads for Roxie and Velma are as good as it is possible to get. Powerhouse singing and non-stop dancing make these difficult parts and the actors ace it. Eddie George is a literally Huge presence as the money-hungry attorney. The man has some pipes on him. And all the Fosse dancers are snap crackle pop sharp. So, it's just that good, and will be remembered as a 2019 high point in Chicago theater long after it's too brief run.

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.

2.5 star rating RJ from Fort Lauderdale, Florida

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.

ZERO STARS FOR ZERO EFFORT

This was horribly flat. No imagination, it felt like all the actors were going through the motions of one of the longest running musicals of all time. The sad part is, everyone is very talented, but I blame everything on poor direction and choreography. Really a shame

UNDERWHELMING

scenery---boring singing---little harmony, voices of the leads did not go together well costumes---dull and hard to discern with so much dull black on stage scenery---too busy with orchestra on the stage, everything was a dull black, little to treat the eye Billy Flynn---little expression and even less movement overall---felt like cast was trying too hard and just couldn't pull it off, a very dull, underwhelming and disappointing show

CHICAGO THE MUSICAL

Boring! Disappointing set. Most songs sounded like repeats. Orchestra on the stage was distracting. I expected a lot more for $150/ticket.
