I saw the chicago tour twice- subscriber ticket and lottery. I enjoyed the show even more the second time. The director made many interesting choices- most worked some didn’t. I was interested in my audience responses. I rode the bus home with five people aged 20-30ish and they all enjoyed the show but most had not seen a more traditional production or the movie yet. The user told me 100 people left at intermission (even before seeing the ballet- which I did not really enjoy). For my lottery ticket I sat next to 3 theatre students and they also enjoyed the show.
I can say I saw the 1979 production at The Arie Crown Theatre and a production at Marriott. All memorable in there own way but this new production really opened the door for some great conversations. I’m glad Chicago took a chance at hosting the show- it’s not for everyone, but it seems to be bringing younger people to the production and in turn making them ask questions and researching history.
