REVIEWS

Will dazzle newcomers to the trademark Fosse dance style and provide a thrilling reminder to those who've seen it before just how smart, sexy and exciting this brand of choreography was, or rather is...If nothing else, the concert staging would be well worthwhile simply for the terrific, overlooked score by John Kander and Fred Ebb...If the Kander & Ebb style can be described in one word, it's showstopper. And though their detractors might argue that the tenacity can be wearying, they'll find scant support for that position in "Chicago." Even in a concert staging, the momentum starts high and gets higher.

- Adam R. Perlman, Variety

Pulse-racing...Some of the sexiest, most sophisticated dancing seen on Broadway in years...The America portrayed onstage may be a vision of hell, but the way it's being presented flies us right into musical heaven...Makes an exhilarating case both for "Chicago" as a musical for the ages and for the essential legacy of Fosse, whose ghost has never been livelier than it is here...What this production makes clear is how much "Chicago" is about the joy of seducing an audience that goes to the theater, above all, to be seduced...Much of the credit, of course, goes to Mr. Bobbie, whose delightfully inventive direction sustains just the right tone of heady irony.
