I saw the South African production of Chicago this evening with Liza. It was fantastic. I was impressed with the dancing, singing and music. My only criticism, which I agree with Liza, is that it had a high sleaze factor, as far as some of the costumes and dancing went. But, hey… Sex sells!!
Not sure if I prefer the theatrical version to the movie one, but I think it would have swung it towards the theatrical version if we were sitting closer to the stage, as from our seats, we couldn’t really see the performer’s facial expressions.
