Winner of nine Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize, this landmark work has electrified audiences around the world. In an empty theatre, on a bare stage, casting for a new Broadway musical is almost complete. For seventeen dancers, this audition is the chance of a lifetime. It’s what they’ve worked for with every drop of sweat and every hour or training, putting their lives on the line for the opportunity to do what they’ve always dreamed of doing: to dance. This singular sensation features an incomparable score including “What I Did for Love,” “One” and “Dance Ten, Looks Three.”
The musical was created from workshop sessions with actual Broadway dancers (eight of whom appeared in the original 1975 cast) who shared their hopes, their pain and their personal stories in pursuit of their dream of appearing in a Broadway show. A Chorus Line, during its original Broadway run went on to play 6,137 performance when it closed April 28, 1990 and became the fifth musical ever (after Of Thee I Sing, South Pacific, Fiorello! and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying) to win the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
