Theatre Review: “Barnum” @ The Mercury Theatre, 04/06/13

The Broadway Critic Blog

Barnum Mercury Theatre I’ll be honest, Barnum isn’t a show that I was dying to see but I was extremely interested in checking this production out because Barnum is a musical that isn’t produced very often.

Being my first time in Chicago, I was also very excited to go to the Mercury Theatre for the first time. First off, the space is awesome — intimate, yet big enough to do a circus musical or other relatively big shows (hence their upcoming production of The Color Purple). It’s attached to a restaurant and an Irish pub — two things, that more theatres should be attached to. It’s a social experience from the time you walk in the door. If you do visit Chicago, this is a theatre you should go to. I absolutely loved the feel, experience and overall vibe of The Mercury Theatre.

Now to Barnum…. it’s not the strongest show ever written…
