Went here to see Chicago and although I was highly disappointed in the show the theatre was fine, with a small, private feel to it. Spacious seats, good service - just wish the show had been better !

This is one of my favorite theatres that I've been in...in both London and NYC.
Since it was built in 1930, the Art Deco interiors are absolutely stunning. The moment you walk in through the front doors, you are able to see an Art Deco frieze...and every detail inside is exquisitely designed, from floor to ceiling.

I don't see shows in world-class theatre cities very often, so maybe my standards are lower than some of the recent commenters regarding the production of "Chicago" at Cambridge Theatre... because I really enjoyed myself.
The musical itself is highly entertaining -- and I say this as someone who's not a big musical fan. "Chicago" is full of memorable songs, dances, and comic bits.
