Chicago ★★★★½

The way each song and dance complements the story through the editing, lyrics, tempo, dance styles and choreography is something I don't think has been done elsewhere. The scene on the steps of the courthouse and the hanging scene are especially impactful. Every performance is commanding and memorable. Chicago is flawed (where did they get money in jail?! why didn't Lucy Liu sing?), but it is easily one of the most creative and inventive musicals I've ever seen.
