Yes, the show is good, the cast are good, but the theatre is so cramped that the orchestra share the stage with the actors. The ladies share one cubicle, and the whole place needs to be pulled down (except it is probably listed).

Came to see Broadway's longest running musical 'Chicago'. Small theatre whee even to mezzanine back tow seats get a reasonable view. All seats in stalls have good viewing. But in mezzanine the seats are too close to each other so your feet are uncomfortable.

Saw a very well done Chicago - theatre staff was incredibly friendly, our seats were upgraded, not a bad seat in the house. The show was well run, great experience!

You can call 212-239-6200 or 800-447-7400. There is no direct line to the theater, but you will be able to speak with the theater and ticketing reps.
