Chicago The Musical
Advantages: energetic, great songs and dancing
Disadvantages: can't think of any to be truthful
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 all the key moments and all the key songs such as "Cellblock tango" and "all that jazz" There is a really good connection between the two actresses who play Velma and Roxy, which you certainly see more at the end of the show when they join up together.
The dancers in the show are amazing. There is a mixture of both male and female dancers all of whom are energetic and professional. The show has a very "sexy" feel to it...probably as the dancers are wearing very little!
A special mention must go to the conductor of the orchestra who is a man with so much energy it is unbelievable! He really gets you going at the end of the show.
Certainly worth going to see! I didn't purchase merchandise at this show but saw they had a range of things such as programmes, teddy bears and t shirts.
Summary: Worth watching but not a carbon copy of the film!
