The actors were original with great voices. You could feel the energy in every movement. The singing was chilling and the acts seemed impromptu. There was lots of spice in the performance that kept both men and women on the edge of their seats. Moma was a secret treat who really played the part. It was a performance that made the audience want more. I love the diversity and beauty in all aged and races. It is definitely an adult show with all sorts of humor. I love it, love it, love it! This is a must-see!

5.0 star rating Colleen Bevans from Houston, Texas


I've seen the movie and the musical on stage once before- this was SO MUCH BETTER! Christina Wells as "Mama" blows it outta the park!! This woman is a multi-talented dynamo-- I knew she could sing-- I mean- REALLY SING, but she was the best actor on the stage. Many times when a big name singer does a musical, the acting is not on point- she was just fantastic!!! Roxy was also very good- a fantastic dancer and believable. Great job to the entire cast!! The background dancers were fantastic, the band was fantastic- STELLAR!!

Spectacular! So entertaining! What a talented cast! The orchestra was phenomenal! What a delight to go to the Fisher Theater and see a Broadway sensation. Fabulous!!!

My wife and I went to the Emerson to see Chicago in Boston. A packed house and everyone loved it. Had dinner at Maggiano's made for a great night out. Standing ovation at the end.

We caught the Saturday matinee performance in New Haven. This tour emulates the production revived by the late Ann Reinking. Everything about the show and the company is spectacular. We especially liked the actors playing Roxie Hart, Billy Flynn, Matron Mama Morton, and Mary Sunshine. Having the orchestra on stage was a fun plus. The choreography is great and you could tell all the actors were having a fun time. We have had subscriptions to the Shubert Theater for several years now and they have been worth every penny. The seats assigned to us have remained the same and could almost be considered house seats. Claire's Corner Copia, directly across the street from the theater, is our go-to restaurant for a delicious vegetarian pre-show lunch. Finally, convenient parking in a large multi-level lot is just a few feet away nearly next to the theater.

Everything from the cast and choreography to the staging it was first class! I have enjoyed the play several times before but this was the best.

5.0 star rating David Archuleta from Denver, Colorado


I've seen this several times past. The orchestra on stage is a fantastic change. The tuba, bone ,sax- all of it sounded so much better. This was the best performance of all of them. Great job- a must see !!
