I saw Chicago for the first time a few days and have to say i was very impressed . It is currently playing at the Cambridge theatre, after downsizing from the Adelphi theatre but this does not seem to make any difference. The story lines its self keeps you drawn in through out the whole show so that you cant believe its over in the short time of 2 hours 20 minutes which includes a 20 minute interval. for those that have seen the film, there is little difference except for a few extra songs which nobody is going to complain about, seeing as the show did come first. the actors and actresses were extremely convincing with fantastic dancing. On a Friday there are ... Read the complete review

"Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you a story of murder, greed, corruption, violence, exploitation, adultery and treachery. All those things we hold near and dear to our hearts..." Chicago in the early 1930s. A city where killing is a form of entertainment and where, if you're lucky, you can get away with murder. Chicago tells the story of Roxie Hart, a woman who killed her lover and is sent to prison facing the death penalty. But Roxie's biggest ambition is to be famous and have her own vaudeville act, and she soon discovers that, with a little bending of the truth and a little media manipulation, her dreams could become reality. Cue hotshot ... Read the complete review

I've always loved the film with Richard Gere and Renee Zellweger so was thrilled when I got tickets to see Chicago the musical for my birthday last year. The musical varies a lot from the film, to start with there are added plots, and songs. Then there are the characters - after watching Renee Zellweger and Catherine Zeta Jones for so long on DVD it was hard to picture the characters as other people. As a massive (slightly obsessive) fan I knew all the words to the songs and so every so often one would come along that I hadn't heard before, which was great because it took away the predictive style of the film(and gave me new songs to learn)! Just ... Read the complete review

Chicago the musical is currently running at the Cambridge Theatre in London. I was lucky enough to go and see the show a few weeks ago. Having seen the film version many times and loving all the songs I was really excited about seeing it live on stage. For those of you not familiar with the story of Chicago. One of the dancers sums it up just as the overture begins with the words, "Ladies and gentlemen, you are about to see a story of murder, greed, corruption, violence, exploitation, adultery and treachery, all those things we hold near and dear to our hearts." We are taken back to Chicago in the 1920's where the city is fuelled by jazz, liquor ... Read the complete review

I have been fortunate enough to see Chicago twice, once in Manchester and once in London's West End. For the purpose of this review I am going to focus on the show I saw in London at The Cambridge Theatre. Firstly we booked our tickets when we arrived in London at the TKT's booth. We saved around 50% on the cost of our ticket and were sat on the second row from the front. I would fully recommend doing this. We got a little lost trying to find the Cambridge Theatre but there are lots of friendly people around Covent Garden to ask and we did find our way in the end. Don't expect the show to be a carbon copy of the film, however there are ... Read the complete review

Memorable, mostly new routines from the late 90s comedian.
Still doesn't quite have it nailed.
|Tom Stade - Setlist|
Involves the audience in trying to make sense of a jumbled board of prompts.
Targeting of the disabled and war victims will doubtless offend.
