ABOUT 

Starting at midnight January 26, 1974, dancer and choreographer Michael Bennett held a twelve-hour taped gathering with twenty-two dancers to talk about their lives onstage and off, not knowing exactly where it would lead. This would become the genesis for what has become one of the most influential Broadway musicals of all time: "A CHORUS LINE."

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 gypsies to land a job in the show, and is a powerful metaphor for all human aspiration.

A CHORUS LINE is a celebration of those unsung heroes of the American Musical Theatre-the chorus dancers, those valiant, over dedicated, underpaid, highly trained performers who back up the star or stars and often make them look even more talented than they are. It is also a celebration of the American Musical itself.

This production, deemed as the “Best Musical, Ever” is also about competition, and competition might easily be the common denominator that grabs the audience and holds it by the collective heartstring until the final, ultimate choices are made. For everyone, at one time or another, puts their life on the line. We all compete, no matter what business we’re in, for promotion, for attention, for approval and above all else, for love.

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. It is a brilliantly complex fusion of dance, song and compellingly authentic drama. The show was instantly recognized as a classic.
