January 11th - April 1, 2018 One of the longest-running Broadway musicals ever, A Chorus Line is the recipient of the Pulitzer Prize and nine Tony Awards including Best Musical.
This beloved and iconic musical by James Kirkwood & Nicholas Dante with a brilliant and show-stopping score by Marvin Hamlisch & Lyrics by Edward Kleban, is a celebration of those unsung heroes of the Musical Theatre, the chorus dancers, valiant, over- dedicated, underpaid and highly trained troopers who back up the star and often make them look more talented. The characters portrayed in A Chorus Line are based on the real-life experiences of Broadway dancers.
Its powerful stories are touching, funny, inspiring and relatable to anyone with a passion for performing. The show is a brilliantly complex fusion of dance, song and compellingly authentic drama.
