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.
