Venue Details

If you're going to any event at the San Jose Center for Performing Arts, consider having dinner and/or after dinner drinks at Paolo's. It's been there forever, and there's a reason for that! You can park in the structure, (enter on Woz Way), enjoy dinner, then just walk over the Guadalupe River bridge and you're at the Center! A whole evening of entertainment in one spot. :-)

They had mostly snacks and beverages available at the concessions. Didn't notice anything substantial to eat (wasn't looking, though). It's so close to downtown, so there's a lot of great dining options nearby for before or after.

Awesome. I bought 4 seats and we were in row 10. :) Very happy with the venue, the seating, and of course, the show. WOW. I can't believe they can dance in those heels! And, you can't hear them click clack on the stage either. Fantastic.

Excellent production! I've seen Chicago before and I'd have to say that the singing dancing and performing were definitively Broadway quality.

The venue was very nice. I parked in the San Jose conference center lot which was very close by. ...continued

Description

There’s never been a better time to experience Chicago, Broadway’s razzle-dazzle smash. This triumphant hit musical is the recipient of six Tony Awards®, two Olivier Awards, a Grammy® and thousands of standing ovations. A sensational tale of sin, corruption and all that jazz, it’s no surprise that Chicago has wowed audiences from Mexico City to Moscow, from Sao Paulo to South Africa. And now it’s coming to San Jose!

Chicago has everything: knockout dancing, an edge-of-your-seat story and one showstopper after another. If you loved the Academy Award®-winning film, nothing beats the live show, and if you are already intimately acquainted with the musical, experience that sizzle again, Chicago always delivers.
