ONE SINGULAR SENSATION! A LONG AWAITED REVIVAL

Originally opening at the Shubert Theater in the fall of 1975. By the time this riveting musical closed in April of 1990, after 6,137 performances, it was the longest running show in Broadway history. It was eventually surpassed by Cats in 1997 and more recently by The Phantom of the Opera this year. On October 5, 2006 a revival will bring the curtain up once again at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theater with Chorus Line tickets selling fast.

The cast includes 19 lead characters that all have a story to tell. It takes place in an empty Broadway theater where hopeful dancers audition for a shot at being in a chorus line of a new musical. We get a glimpse of what it must be like for a performer to not necessarily become a star, but to just get the job. The show takes us into the lives of the characters as they tell the director and us through song how they got to Broadway. We listen to their personal tales of every audition, dance class and music lesson they have ever attended. They describe all of the failures and hardships along the way that have helped shape them into who they are today. They put everything out there in hopes of getting this job. As we hear each of their stories we are secretly rooting for each of them to somehow get that elusive Broadway role. Unfortunately, there is only room for eight dancers in this chorus line, so some will inevitably go home broken hearted once again.

The incredible score was written by Marvin Hamlish with lyrics by Edward Kleban. While all of the music captures just what these dancers are feeling, two memorable songs from this show are “One” and “What I Did for Love.” When A Chorus Line debuted, it won nine Tony awards including Best Musical, Best Choreography and Best Score. It also did something few musicals rarely achieve; in 1976 it won the Pulitzer Prize for drama.

This phenomenon was so contagious that in 1985 a film adaptation for the big screen was created. It starred Michael Douglas in the role of Zach the director and was nominated for three Academy Awards and two Golden Globes. It also attained substantial box office success.

Now with the revival scheduled to open this fall, a whole new generation of theatergoers can experience this musical sensation. This timeless story holds up just as well as it did three decades ago. A Chorus Line not only celebrates Broadway Theater, but gives the audience the opportunity to walk (or dance) in the footsteps of a performer who so desperately wants and needs that job. When the final chorus line is revealed at the end of the show, it is almost impossible to not want to stand up and high kick with them!
