Daily Herald - Highly Recommended

"...The smash 1996 Broadway revival touring again through Sunday at Chicago's Cadillac Palace Theatre is essentially the same well-oiled and crowd-pleasing machine it's ever been. That's especially true since so many of the tour's reliable stars have played these roles here before. That includes Terra C. MacLeod as killer vaudevillian Velma Kelly, Roz Ryan as the calculating Matron "Mama" Morton and John O'Hurley as money-loving lawyer Billy Flynn."

Chicago Reader - Somewhat Recommended

"...Not that the Equity tour currently visiting town isn't good. Led by an irrepressible Dylis Croman as Roxie Hart, the jazz age chorine who parlays a homicide into a career, the show is well played, funny, and conscientiously sexy. It's just that (a) the post-Nixonian cynicism of Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse's book tends to come across as old news in our Trumpian present, and (b) the Fosse-style choreography has taken on a time-capsule quality, like a Kinescope of an old TV show. Maybe it's time for a makeover."

"...Running only through Sunday at the Cadillac Palace Theatre in this national tour, Chicago proves again how everything old is new again. For Maurine Watkins' crime-based comedy (an amoral companion to The Front Page, its equally cynical contemporary), the time is 1926, when a shyster flim-flams a credulous jury with razzle dazzle. Following acquittal, Chicago murderesses Roxie Hart and Velma Kelly-former rivals turned reluctant partners-enjoy brief vaudeville glory at, among many venues, our old McVickers Theatre. Then "Chicago's killer-dillers" sink into the obscurity that was interrupted by two unpunished slayings."

"...If you want to see an expert Broadway musical, this production of Chicago sure qualifies. If you've never seen Chicago and/or you've only seen the film, then do get to the Cadillac Palace to witness the "real" Chicago. There is nothing like a Bob Fosse dance show. Chicago is Fosse's best. It is thrilling and so polished. Kudos to Broadway In Chicago for bringing back this classic. Hurry, it is only here through Sunday."

Around The Town Chicago - Highly Recommended

"...There is something uniquely special about "Chicago", now appearing on the stage at the Cadillac Palace Theatre as part of the Broadway In Chicago season. With a book by Fred Ebb and Chicago native Bob Fosse and music by John Kander and Ebb, this musical tale has become the number One longest running American musical in Broadway history, and I for one am thankful that it comes home to roost every years or so. Based on the original play written by Maurine Dallas Watkins, "Chicago" takes us back in time to the "Roaring Twenties" where murder, greed, corruption, violence, adultery, treachery and exploitation were a part of life. Some may call this era, "The Good Old Days!""

Chicagoland Theater Reviews - Highly Recommended

"...After seeing a half dozen "Chicago" presentations, I'm still in awe of the audacity of the show, treating the murder trials of Roxie Hart and Velma Kelly in Cook County as a kind of vaudeville show. The on-stage orchestra leader announces songs and scene changes directly to the audience, No attempt is made to achieve realism or conventional storytelling. There are still moments of genuine emotion, though comedy, much of it very adult, remains king."

The Fourth Walsh - Highly Recommended

"...CHICAGO is what Chicago likes best... a good time! The show entertains with high energy spunk. From the first note, I started shoulder shimmying in my seat. And I haven't stopped yet as the unforgettable score continues playing in my head."
