I saw Chicago (Broadway), but I don't remember exactly when. Overall, I'd say it was a 3-star rating. I'd summarize it by saying “a bit boring, and over rated. ”
I had a okay time and left the show feeling wanting more and tired. I'd describe the show as simplistic, great dancing, and funny. The dancers was a highlight of the show because they were just, the best. If this were a movie, I'd rate it PG-13. I would recommend this show to theater goers but not to Broadway first timers.
I saw this show because you can not live your life without seeing this legendary revival. . I wouldn't see it again. I sat in the center orchestra area of the theater. The view was a full view and the seats were comfy. .
Chicago, for me was okay. I did not like the simplicity of it, I am paying $126 a ticket, and I felt that I didn't see any of that on the stage. I respect simplicity, as I loved revivals of Sweeny Todd and Company, but this one just did not do it for me. Now, if you want to go see some AMAZING dancers with some AMAZING bodies, and tap your toes to the amazing Kander and Ebb music, GO. But if its your first time on Broadway, go see something else. The show is for sure sexy, and brilliant, but I am just not into this revival.
