Newest Review: ... as much as the old, well-loved songs. Previous stars of the stage version of Chicago have included Marti Pellow, John ĎNasty Nickí Altman, Jennifer Ellison, Jill Halfpenny and Claire Sweeney, so we were wondering who our stars would be. Therefore, I was slightly disappointed to discover I didnít know any of the cast at all. But a few minutes in, we realised it really doesnít matter. After ... more

Last night, for my middle daughterís birthday treat, three of us (my daughters aged 14 and 12 and I) went to the Bristol Hippodrome to see Chicago on stage.

Chicago, Illinois: The Late 1920’s. Location: A whoopee spot where the piano’s hot. And all that jazz. It seems strange seeing Chicago and reflecting on the show in light of having seen Miss Saigon. The latter, from myself anyhow, received five stars for it’s sheer size and spectacle of set, score and story. To give Chicago the same five red stars for a show where minimalism is the in-thing is quite an alarming thing to do. Chicago is simplicity itself. You see where other musicals try to out do each other in terms of the grand spectacle – Miss Saigon has the helicopter, Phantom the Chandelier and Les Miserables the Barricades ...
