The Tick is the perfect superhero show for our times
Amazon Video’s superpowered satire finds the humor in the characters who dominate pop culture in the 2010s. When Chicago debuted on Broadway in 1975, it was generally well-received, despite some reviewers finding it a bit too over-the-top in its satire of crime, celebrity, and show business. It ran for two years, always in the shadow of the smash hit A Chorus Line (which had opened around the same time). And then it closed.
