This was our only let down in a fantastic week in New York. I adore musical theatre and have seen many, and this was a total let down! The orchestra taking up most of the stage, no costume changes or other scenery at all, poor...More

Yes, do your research and read the reviews, the seating is tight, the venue is small and the cast are of a particular age. But with all of the above negatives, if you can put up with them the show is great fun. When booking...More

We booked to see Chicago on Broadway 3 months before travel, the show and cast were out of this world. Roxie (Bianca) was lovely to meet at the stage door and spent a long time with us. Cuba gooding jnr was the best as Billy...More

Wasn't expecting much after reading some of the reviews, but we enjoyed outselves. I expected cramped seating but I was fine (and I'm a tall gal at 5'11"). Was warned ahead about the restroom situation so planned accordingly. The orchestra was fabulous. The two leads...More

I can't complain about the price, because I got "day of" tickets for $70 apiece; however, I have quite a few other complaints: 1. The theater was soooo tiny and cramped, that when we tried to get into our seats, 3rd and 4th from end,...More

This was the second time I’ve seen this play in 20 years. I absolutely love the songs and was looking so forward to it. I was surprised that the stars had such low energy. They are older now sure but why were the main stars...More

I was surprised by how tired/old the show seemed - not broadway level AT ALL. While the leads are talented and in good shape, at almost 60 years old (!) they are no longer what you would want to see as the sexy hot leading...More

Really enjoyed this show - although the dancing and some of the performances weren't particularly dynamic (you get the sense that the performers have been doing this show for a very long time).

We attended an evening show on a Tuesday in early December. The performance itself was great, the signing and dancing had us thoroughly entertained. It is obvious that the performers are seasoned professionals in the show. We had purchased our tickets several months in advance...More

I only upped the rating to average as wife and daughter enjoyed the experience. The queuing to get in is a joke; they move you from one queue to another then check bags and move you again.... In side small and nothing at all special....More

There is nothing too bad, some subtle references to adult situations... but solid PG. 12 and up is fine.
