Why add bad language - no f words but others. Took Lord’s name in vain twice. Not necessary. Amos (Roxie’s husband) was great. So were MaMa and Billy (the attorney). Dancing was great. Singing (besides aforementioned) was ok. Nothing to rave about.

2.5 star rating RJ from Fort Lauderdale, Florida


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!

2.0 star rating Scott Miller from Houston, Texas


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. .

Christie Brinkley does not have the voice or dance skill to do justice to the role of Roxy. The rest of the cast was fantastic and they carried the show. I would love to see it again with a professional singer and dancer playing Roxy.

I took my mother-in-law to see this show at The Fox in Atlanta, one of our favorite venues. We were very disappointed and left at intermission. We couldn’t understand what the cast was saying or singing, and the costuming left us guessing regarding roles. We had never seen the show before, so we couldn’t follow the plot and had no idea what was going on. Certainly the performers are very talented, but there just seemed to be a lot of movement and sound going on, with no real purpose. I have to admit that I was relieved when my mother-in-law indicated that she was ready to leave, because I was starting to fall asleep. A real disappointment, and an expensive one, too. We’ve enjoyed shows in our small, local theater significantly more than this one.

2.0 star rating Theater Lover from Chicago, Illinois


This show was so disappointing. The cast lacked energy and cohesiveness, there were issues with volume throughout (e.g we were in third row center and could barely hear the words), and the whole show just fell flat. The leads were weak, and there was no spark. My daughter’s high school production of this show was frankly much better. Would not recommend.

2.0 star rating Disappointed from Chicago, Illinois


This was rough. My husband got tickets as a surprise because he knows how much I love the show and this production was so poor, we left at intermission. The leads (and everyone else, but especially the leads) are weak. The dancing is unexciting. The blocking and choreography is boring, mediocre and did not take sight lines into account. The sound was off (music was not loud enough and some dialogue was hard to hear). No one on stage had any chemistry. Were this a regional theater production, I would have understood the lack of professionalism and finesse, but for the level of production and the cost of tickets, this was embarrassing and inexcusable.
