It was a bit chilly in the theater, not that they needed to work to keep anyone awake!

NO legroom. Amazed we didn't all leave with deep-vein thrombosis.

“It has always been (and still is) a glamorous, potent, exciting, sexy and greatly amusing night out.” —Chicago Tribune
“Chicago proves to be a musical with legs, in more ways than one. An amazing live dance-a-thon that only a cast of top Broadway veterans could carry off.” —Chicago Sun-Times


Starring John O’Hurley (Seinfeld) as Billy Flynn and Charlotte d’Amboise as Roxie Hart.

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.

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.
