Premio Award Winner ~ Best Musical (Madrid)
A high-powered production that answers the question, where Chicago is concerned there is no such thing as too much. . . . Suffice it to say McNabb has embraced Fosse’s concepts but fueled and flavored the dancing with his own imprint. . . . Which Chicago to select first, the answer is obvious, Chicago at Westchester Broadway Theatre is exactly that – live and vibrant.
– Chesley Plemmons, The News-Times
. . . under the keen direction of Barry McNabb aknowledges its debt to Fosse and doe s that great showman proud, McNabb captures the essence of Fosse’s original choreography without presenting a mere copy. . . . While the film version seems destined to pick up a Best Picture Academy Award, you will not see a better production than at Westchester Broadway.
– Don Collester, Journal America
In a highly polished live staged production of Chicago the gifted performers glide, slink, sway and high-step through the Kander & Ebb numbers brilliantly choreographed by the director Barry McNabb.

If you’ve seen one Chicago, haven’t you seen them all? Certainly not. The Westchester version of Chicago is more sexual and edgy than the movie. ‘This is so Hot,’ murmured one young man to a friend at intermission.
