Except for the dancing and the band, the show is tired, lacking the dynamics needed to make it compelling.   Touring is exhausting, but the cast has an obligation to give the paying public a fresh, attention holding production.  This performance, unfortunately, wasn’t compelling!

With all the gray days of winter clouding our brains it is nice to get out and into a comfortable theater for a raucous evening of hot music, dancing and comedy. While not up to the standards of previously witnessed performances it is good enough as an early winter break and retreat from the holiday pressures.

BOTTOM LINE: If you are already a big fan of Chicago then you might enjoy seeing an old friend one more time. If you don’t make this production, check out the excellent 2002 film with  RenĂ©e Zellweger, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Richard Gere.  Just remember, this is not a lavish production and so don’t go expecting to get one. (This last remark is in memory of an irate customer at intermission who was telling a hapless red coat something to the effect that “It’s not worth the $80 I paid.”)
