CHICAGO Quick Review

CHICAGO presented Xavier University Theatre through Oct. 26. I attended the opening Saturday Matinee.

The show itself looks fantastic thanks to set and lighting designer Joe Beumer, and costumes designed by Jessica Pitcairn. The talented ensemble is backed by a great sounding orchestra (under the direction of Scot Buzza) and handles Dee Anne Bryll’s choreography well.

Dylan Van Camp impresses vocally as Mary Sunshine. Across the board, the leads were strong, but I do think they could be a little bigger in their performances without sacrificing any believably.

My rating: 4.25 out of 5.
