Kevin Is The Best Billy Flynn ‘Chicago’ Has Ever Seen

Contributed by elgato:

The New York Post reviewed the latest run of ‘Chicago’ on Broadway finding that the biggest surprise is from Kevin Richardson, who replaces the “all-too-bland and colorless Billy Zane as the sleazy Chicago lawyer, Billy Flynn.” The Post reports, “Richardson, a member of the pop group Backstreet Boys (five albums, 71 million sold worldwide), might seem a classic case of shamelessly opportunistic casting. Wrong! He’s the best of them all – from Jerry Orbach in the original 1975 version to James Naughton in the encore revival.” ‘Chicago’ is throwing a triple punch. The Broadway musical is currently Broadway’s hottest show. The movie, starring Richard Gere and Catherine Zeta-Jones, landed 13 Oscar nominations. The soundtrack, featuring Mya and Anastacia, has been one of the top 10 albums in the U.S. for weeks.

    I just saw Kevin in Chicago in Louisville, Ky and was blown away by his performance. He was amazing and had such a presence on stage.
