Struggling artists in New York’s East Village unite against former friend-turned-yuppie landlord Benny (Diggs). Philosopher Collins (Martin) meets soulmate drag queen Angel (Heredia), filmmaker Mark (Anthony Rapp) loses Maureen (Idina Menzel) to another woman (Tracie Thoms), and Roger (Adam Pascal) falls for junkie dancer Mimi (Dawson).
Given that Chicago is the only movie musical in years to have made a significant profit, it’s unlikely many will give this ragged rock revue a second glance, despite pleasing moments and fiercely committed performances.
