After my rushed post last night, I thought I would write something more substantial on this bright and sunny day.

As I mentioned, I went to see Chicago last night at the King's Theatre in Southsea and I really enjoyed it.

Billy Flinn was played by Jimmy Osmond which attracted most of the audience to the show. He was good as this character.

I did find myself, unfortunately, comparing the show to the film which I have seen many times and love. After I had got over the differences, I thoroughly enjoyed the show. The actors and actresses really shone and took to the characters well.
The additional songs in the show to the film were new and different, the show had some unexpected aspects that really added something special.

Overall it was a great night, I would definitely recommend seeing it if you get the chance.

The sunshine is amazing today, so bright and warm, I don't want to be indoors doing work on this nice day. I hope you are all outside too, enjoy the weekend.

Thanks for the review. I really enjoyed the movie - I think it was a good balance between a theatrical production and a film.

Me too, I just bought the movie on dvd yesterday, my VHS copy was getting a bit worn!
