About A Chorus Line
The show follows 17 dancers who meet in an empty theatre, on a bare stage, where casting for a new Broadway musical is almost complete. For these dancers, this audition is the chance of a lifetime. It’s what they’ve worked for with every drop of sweat, every hour of training, every day of their lives. This is A Chorus Line, the musical for anyone who has ever had a dream and put it all on the line to make that dream come true. One of the first musicals to win the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, A Chorus Line received nine Tony Awards®, including Best Musical.
A Chorus Line contains mature content and may not be suitable for children under 12.

About the Original Artists Behind A Chorus Line
A Chorus Line was conceived by legendary director and choreographer Michael Bennett. He worked with playwright/novelist James Kirkwood and former dancer Nicholas Dante to create the book based on conversations with real dancers (including Baayork Lee) about their lives. With music by Academy Award-winner Marvin Hamlisch and lyrics by Edward Kleban, memorable musical numbers include, “What I Did for Love,” “One,” “I Hope I Get It,” and more. Their combined work alongside some great one-liners by uncredited playwright Neil Simon, results in a funny, passionate, and deeply personal glimpse into the lives and personalities of dancers.
