This first revival of the hit Broadway musical presents the audition of the young men and women – those faceless dancers - who perform behind the stars, and are never in the spotlight. It showcases their joy, despair and triumph, as these 17 dancers audition for a chance to become members of an eight-member Broadway chorus.
What is overwhelming is that this musical became one of the most popular musicals on Broadway, despite the fact that it ran contrary to all Broadway musical conventions. Contrary to what one expected from the extravaganza of a Broadway musical, A Chorus Line has no scenery, no great costumes to boast of, except the performers in leotards, and had a setting of a plain and uninteresting theater. A Chorus Line on Broadway gives a glimpse of the personalities of the dancers, what shaped their lives, and what made them decide to become dancers.
The 17 dancers talk about their hometowns, their families, friends, lovers, about their careers and their ambitions. They share their innermost and most intimate feelings – some stories funny, some heartbreaking. Tickets
