Entertaining Fun

This is only the second Henry Players show I have been able to attend but it was certainly worth the drive out. "Chicago" made for an entertaining good night.

The cast is solid vocally. The energy was a little lacking and someone should have coached them in Yankee accents to add finish to their performances. Billy Flynn and Amos were standout men and Velma and Roxie made a good pair.

The choreography seems to have borrowed largely from the Hollywood film version of the musical, but it's good stuff so why not?

The ensemble was very entertaining, plenty of humor going on behind the leads in scenes like the courtroom. They added a nice layer of fun to the show.

An all around good show. With another weekend in its run, I encourage everyone looking for a good time this Friday, Saturday, or Sunday to go check "Chicago" out. [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]
