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.

I LOVE IT!

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

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!

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!

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. .

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!
