Winner of six Tony Awards and currently the longest-running show on Broadway, 'Chicago' is an electrifying and darkly comic tale about two competitive murderesses behind bars competing for the spotlight. Iconic songs include 'All That Jazz' and 'Razzle Dazzle,' and the choreography is inspired by the late Bob Fosse.

The New York Times

The pulse-racing revival of the musical ''Chicago,'' involves a cast of top-flight artists perfectly mated to their parts and some of the sexiest, most sophisticated dancing seen on Broadway in years...The America portrayed onstage may be a vision of hell, but the way it's being presented flies us right into musical heaven." Full Review

Talkin' Broadway

"Chicago is as good now as it's ever been--a heartening experience, a life-affirming dedication to the magic and art of theatre, and something that absolutely should not be missed. Though all shows must eventually close, the glory and genius of Chicago should be celebrated while it's here, and with any luck, it will still be gracing and energizing Broadway for many years to come." Full Review

Theatermania

"Cynics predicted that the big-screen opus would mean the end of the show's Gotham run, but the opposite has occurred for this Encores!-originated revival...the show is now an SRO proposition. During intermission, audience members may be heard debating the comparative merits of the live and canned treatments." Full Review

100
CurtainUp

"What it's all about: 'murder, greed, corruption, violence, exploitation, adultery and treachery.' Of course what it's also about is sensational dancing, singing, acting...and, fun! No razzle-dazzle mechanical props, just the razzle-dazzle of a company of gifted performers delivering two hours and twenty minutes of show-stopping numbers." Full Review

85
Theatermania

"Broadway's busiest revolving door, better known as the nearly 10-year-old revival of Chicago, has someone new passing through: the R&B superstar with the single moniker of Usher...while he's a good two or three decades younger than most of his predecessors, the tuxedo fits decently enough." Full Review

95
The Associated Press

"A lot of Broadway musicals don't age very well, but the long-running revival of 'Chicago' seems to have discovered the fountain of youth. The score's catchy melodies are potent, toe-tapping reminders of music from the late 1920s, while the lyrics are snappy, pointed and often very funny." Full Review

90
Theatermania

"The Broadway revival of John Kander and Fred Ebb's Chicago, may be on the verge of celebrating its 15th anniversary, but one could hardly tell the production has recently entered the upper echelon of long-running shows on Broadway. There's a crispness to the entire piece of Chicago, that belies its age." Full Review

OoCities

"The stunning revival of Chicago that just opened on Broadway ought to win over any doubters. Chicago hasn't merely aged well; it has come of age...A show that doesn't just give us the old razzle-dazzle; it glows." Full Review

95
New York Daily News

"Because the revival of "Chicago" is so wildly entertaining, I'm hesitant to call it important, always an ugly adjective for a reviewer to use...What makes this revival important, is that it reminds us that musicals are about songs and performers, not scenery. When you have material and performances as dynamic as this, you don't need chandeliers." Full Review

Variety

"If the Kander & Ebb style can be described in one word, it’s showstopper. And though their detractors might argue that the tenacity can be wearying, they’ll find scant support for that position in “Chicago.” Even in a concert staging, the momentum starts high and gets higher." Full Review

Hello Beautiful

"Starring alongside Broadway legend, Amra-Faye Wright, Brandy held her own. Her voice sends goosebumps up your spine, or could it be that you know every woman in the cast has killed someone...? Brandy was lovable as the fiendish, but coy criminal. Her acting was spot-on and her voice was the cherry on top. 'Chicago' is exciting, sexy and absolutely ridiculous and taking that ride with Brandy was one of the most enjoyable Broadway experiences I’ve had in a long time." Full Review

Energetic, Uneven pacing, Losing its luster, Decently entertaining, Tourist-type of show

See it if you've somehow missed it and have yet to do so; like vaudeville or musicals in 1920s jazz-club style that are slim on storytelling.

Don't see it if needing dramatic sets, intense stories, and even pacing. The opening few numbers are energetic and well-done; then the show loses steam.

Also There may still be glimmers of that old razzle-dazzle, but among the g... Read more Read less

Overrated, Dated, Entertaining, Great dancing, Historic

See it if historic broadway musical revivals are always must-see for you. Still stands the test of time buy only because of its infamous choreography.

Don't see it if You're drawn in to seeing it with leads who can't dance or aren't Broadway stalwarts; you don't like minimal stagings or Kander and Ebb.
