About A Chorus Line
A Chorus Line is a stunning musical-verité 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. 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 Broadway show when it closed. This play contains some adult language and themes.
