Broadway in Chicago

The series has been very good this year. I was a little worried that the bad economy would stop people from attending theatre like they did in NYC. Instead, Chicago is getting many of the original Broadway productions (and original cast) because so many have closed. Chicago will sometimes preview a show and then if it does well, it will go to Broadway. (like with the recent Desire Under the Elms at the Goodman Theatre - now on Broadway until July)

So far we (my mother-in-law and sister-in-law) have seen:



Mary Poppins (this was my favorite show and I highly recommend going - you have until the end of July)

A Bronx Tale (a one man show with Chazz Palminteri)

Next Up:

Chorus Line

Legally Blonde the Musical
