LA VANGUARDIA / JOAN-ANTON BENACH

A SPLENDID MUSICAL RECENTLY OPENED AT THE ARNAU THEATRE…CHICAGO IS THE BEST MUSICAL WE HAVE EVER SEEN IN BARCELONA. IT ALL WORKS: THE THEATRICAL PACING, THE SET, THE LIGHTING, THE COSTUMES, THE ACTING AND THE SOUND…

EL MUNDO / MARIA JOSE RAGUÉ

THE EXCELLENT MUSICAL AND STAGE DIRECTION BY BEN DAVIES AND MARC MONTSERRAT LEAD THE ACTORS TO HILARIOUS PERFORMANCES.

ACORDIA / GUILLEM CLUA

CHICAGO – BRILLIANT AND SEDUCTIVE. THE SHOW HAS A GREAT BALANCE BETWEEN ITS COMPONENT PARTS…AT TIMES IT REACHES MOMENTS OF STRIKINGLY STRONG THEATRICALITY.

GUÍA DEL OCIO / GONZALO PÉREZ DE OLAGUER

CHICAGO IS A SURPRISING PARADE OF INDIVIDUAL DISCOVERIES…POWERFUL, INTERESTING VOICES (…)

ABC / JUAN CARLOS OLIVARES

MARC MONTSERRAT’S DIRECTION AND BENJAMIN DAVIES’S CONDUCTING WERE MUCH TO OUR LIKING (…) A BRILLIANT CATALAN VERSION OF THE AMERICAN CLASSIC.

TELVA / C. MARINERO

CHICAGO WAS THE NUMBER 1 SHOW IN SPAIN’S LEADING WEEKLY ENTERTAINMENTS GUIDE, ”LA GUIA DEL OCIO”  (CRITICS’ CHOICE LIST FOR 7 MONTHS.)
