I thought the dancing and singing was truly just okay! I have seen this show before in NY and it was so much more spectacular. the person I was with had never seen the show and did love it so maybe it was just my perspective.

Saw Chicago in London and wanted to see again in the USA...wasn't disappointed. Being accompanied by an Orchestra really brought it up a notch and I enjoyed the performances of John Hurley as Billy Flynn and Amra-Faye Wright as Velma Kelley....continued

I enjoyed the production. The seats were very good even at the lowest price level. The ensamble cast was very good. I enjoyed their voices and dance. Mamma and Miss Sunshine stole the show.

The production was great - dancing, orchestra, lighting, costumes, etc.
Billy Flynn and Velma Kelly outstanding! Christie Brinkley, beautiful as always, but no passion, no intensity, or compelling presence.Weak singing and acting. She is too...continued

The music, story, and dancing were terrific. Christie Brinkley was not very good and I would not recommend this.

Christie Brinkley gave a high school performance. If I was producing this show, I would NEVER have hired her! BUT the rest of the cast was outstanding! Music, dancing, singing was great!

I enjoyed Chicago. However, the cast in other versions of this show was better - a few of the funny moments were lost, I felt.

If it were not for "Mama" & "Amos" the fabulous orchestra, the show would have been a waste of time and money.
North Shore Music Theater (a local venue) put this play on a few years ago and it was 100 times better with no known names in it.

I would say the show was average..a little slow in places. John O'Hurley and Amra-Faye Wright (Velma) are outstanding. Christie Brinkley's performance was okay not outstanding as her co-stars. Christie's performance was not horrible..just was...continued

This was no razzle-dazzle sparkling performance. Christie Brinkley dreadfully miscast as Roxie Hart, and her deficiencies were most glaringly obvious when juxtaposed with the talents of John O'Hurley and Kecia Lewis-Evans. The theatre was...continued

It was good but certainly not great. The lead should have been Amra-Faye Wright. She out sang and danced Christie Brinkley. John O'Hurley was goood in his part.
I enjoyed the dancers. Thought they did a great job.

Very entertaining, John O'Hurley was outstanding, Christy was very good in her part but lacked the pizzaz of the other players.

Our seats were wonderful-12th row center orchestra. Thank you Goldstar!! Unfortunately, the performance was mediocre at best. I had seen Chicago in the late 1990's, it's first time in Boston. My daughter had seen a college theater performance at...continued

As expected, Christie Brinkley was the lowlight in an otherwise energetic production of Chicago. The other leads were fun to watch, and the ensemble was fantastic. Brinkley gave it her all, but simply lacks the raw talent of the other...continued

Christie Brinkley's performance was so weak that the whole crew could not bring the spirit up.
