Show Summary

Book by James Kirkwood and Nicholas Dante
Music by Marvin Hamlisch – Lyrics by Edward Kleban

A Chorus Line is a stunning musical capturing the spirit and tension of a Broadway chorus audition.

Exploring the inner lives and poignant ambitions of professional Broadway gypsies, the show features one powerhouse number after another. Memorable musical numbers include “What I Did for Love, “One,” “I Can Do That,” “At the Ballet,” “The Music and the Mirror,” and “I Hope I Get It.” A brilliantly complex fusion of song, dance, and compellingly authentic drama, A Chorus Line was instantly recognized as a classic.
