A philosopher once called theater “the mask of convention over the face of society in the mirror of the unknown reflecting the rear-view of the sports car of destiny.” Simplify this theory with today’s theatrical Groupon: for $65, you get one orchestra or front mezzanine ticket to see Chicago on Broadway for a weekend matinee performance (a $116.50 value). All available performances start at 2:30 p.m.

A universal tale of fame, fortune, and all that jazz, Chicago captivates audiences as unsavory characters sing sultry numbers on the streets of the Prohibition-era Windy City. Velma Kelly, played by Amra-Faye Wright, is a vivacious vaudevillian who also happens to be a cold-blooded killer. She competes for celebrity status and the attention of lawyer Billy Flynn (played by Tom Hewitt) against fellow murderess and performer Roxie Hart, played by Tony Award nominee Charlotte d'Amboise. You'll witness jailhouse tangos, courthouse rumbles, and scene after scene of unbelievable dancing choreographed by the Tony Award–winning Ann Reinking, all while wondering when the chorus line of Sears Towers is going to show up.
Chicago has been honored with six Tony Awards, two Olivier Awards, a Grammy, and thousands of standing ovations, followed by simultaneous enrollments in local dance academies. You'll have an excellent view of every kick, shuffle, and fourth-wall deconstruction with spectacular orchestra or front mezzanine seats at the Ambassador Theater. Add to your travels through musical theater named for geographic locales—with Oklahoma, South Pacific, and The Phantom of the Opera of Sheboygan already checked off the list—by getting your ticket to Chicago.
Note on fees: The $65 price includes the facility fee, but you'll still need to pay the $7 service fee.
Chicago has received a ton of press, including reviews by Theatre Is Easy and Helium. More than 10,000 Facebookers like the Ambassador Theater run of Chicago. Yelpers give it a three-star average, and Broadway Boxers give it a four-star average rating:
- Fun music, killer dancing and a great time. If you haven't seen Chicago you need to. It's really that simple. – Ben Charles, Theater Is Easy
- Chicago thrusts forward a story that displays individuals working an aggressive charm and deceptive allure to achieve what they most desire. This is a rich flow of injustice and scandal, opening us up to see that things might not always be what they seem. – Lorain Blanken, Helium
