AUDITION NOTICE: Starting at midnight January 26, 1974, dancer and choreographer Michael Bennett held a twelve-hour taped gathering with twenty-two dancers to talk about their lives onstage and off, not knowing exactly where it would lead. This would become the genesis for what has become one of the most influential Broadway musicals of all time: "A CHORUS LINE."
THE STORY: A CHORUS LINE,(Book By: James Kirkwood & Nicholas Dante; Lyrics By: Edward Kleban; Music By: Marvin Hamlisch) 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. It is also a celebration of the American Musical itself. A CHORUS LINE is also about competition, which might easily be the common denominator that grabs the audience and holds it by the collective heartstring until the final, ultimate choices are made; for everyone, at one time or another, puts his life on the line. We all compete, no matter what business we’re in, for promotion, for attention, for approval and for love. Includes songs such as "What I Did For Love", "At The Ballet", and "One".
