A Chorus Line is a celebration of those unsung heroes of the American Musical Theatre: the chorus dancers -- those valiant, over dedicated, underpaid, highly trained performers who back up the star or stars and often make them look even more talented than they are. It is also a celebration of the American Musical itself. A Chorus Line is also about competition and competition might easily be the common denominator that grabs the audience and holds it by the collective heartstring until the final, ultimate choices are made. A Chorus Line takes the audience through the final grueling audition run by the director, Zach, for a new Broadway musical.
A Chorus Line departs from the usual glossy backstage musical by presenting a true picture of what it's like to be in the theatre: glamorous, yes, at times, but also tough, heartbreaking and sometimes even tragic. Featuring memorable songs and dances such as ‘One’ and ‘At the Ballet’, A Chorus Line was the winner of multiple Tony Awards and was the longest running show on Broadway until ‘Cats’.
