John O'Hurley Stars in CHICAGO Cast, Detroit {review}

Last night I was tapping my foot to the tunes of CHICAGO The Musical during its opening night at the Fisher Theater in Detroit, MI. This being my first time seeing the play, I wasn't too sure of what to expect. {I just can't allow myself to compare it to the movie.}  After my evening, I can tell you this is one, sizzling show.

Terra C. MacLEOD {Velma Kelly} immediately captivated the crowd with her performance of "All That Jazz". She set the bar high for the rest of the performances that evening with her flawless song and dance. She was a true joy to watch.

Tracy Shayne in the role of Roxie Heart was greatly entertaining. My favorite of her performances was of the song "We Both Reached for the Gun". Her "puppet act" with John O'Hurley {Billy} was completely perfect and quite impressive. Tracy is a little fireball and she had me in stitches throughout the musical.


Roz Ryan played the role of Matron "Mama" Morton. All I can say about her is "She is goooooooooooood". Her vocal talents were stellar; not one person in the cast can out-sing this "Mama". Her comedic timing was impeccable and she had the whole crowd under her spell.

And then there's John O'Hurley. You may know him from Seinfeld or Family Feud. However, last night he owned the role of "Billy" in a way that made me forget the other ways I was familiar with him. His presence on stage was larger than life. His character's debonair and savoir faire made every woman in the crowd swoon a little as he was singing "All I Care About". He is perfection to see on stage and something that you don't want to miss. 

CHICAGO's cast is simply outstanding. Take a trip to the Fisher Theater to see them if you can.
