Review: Chicago

One Sentence Summary: The prison-in-the-20s jazz musical that the Oscar winning film is based on.

Trivia: The West End revival of Chicago is closing in August after 13 years.

Best thing about it: The music is still great, this cast is excellent, and the revival version is perfectly deconstructed, forcing the audience to use their heads.

What they could change: Just a few dodgy accents.

We left thinking: Few 40 year old shows have aged so well.

Verdict: A fantastic night out, and all that jazz. 9 / 10
