Seventeen stories. Eight chances. One singular sensation New York City. 1975. On an empty Broadway stage, seventeen performers are put through their paces in the final, gruelling audition for a new Broadway musical. Only eight will make the cut. A Chorus Line is a musical masterpiece that revolutionised Broadway, with creator Michael Bennett using real-life testimonies from late-night recording sessions with dancers. Celebrate the lives of theatre’s unsung heroes, as they tell searing stories of ambition, shattered hopes, and what it really costs to follow your dreams.
Directed by Nikolai Foster, with a book by James Kirkwood and Nicholas Dante, music by Marvin Hamlisch and lyrics by Edward Kleban, A CHORUS LINE features iconic songs including One, I Hope I Get It, Nothing and the hit ballad What I Did For Love.
A CHORUS LINE features set design by Grace Smart (Hamlet, The Globe), costume design by Edd Lindley (Billy Elliot the Musical, Curve), lighting design by Howard Hudson (& Juliet, Broadway, West End, Australia) and sound design by Tom Marshall (Grease, Dominion Theatre). The show’s orchestra will be supported by music licensing company, PPL.
