Back by popular demand! A CHORUS LINE is a stunning musical-vérité about a chorus audition for a Broadway musical. It tells of the achingly poignant ambitions of professional Broadway dancers to land a job in the show, and is a powerful meta-phor for all human aspiration.
Based on real Broadway dancers’ stories, as told to fellow dancer and choreographer Michael Bennett, A CHORUS LINE is funny, heartbreaking, and refreshingly honest and remains the sixth longest-running Broadway show ever.
Memorable musical numbers include I Can Do That, At the Ballet, Dance:Ten; Looks:Three, The Music and the Mirror, What I Did for Love, One (Singular Sensation) and I Hope I Get It. Winner of nine Tony Awards!
