Broadway’s iconic dance musical comes to Sydney
A Chorus Line opened on Broadway in 1975. Ten Tony Awards®, a Pulitzer Prize for Drama and countless international plaudits later, it remains one of the most successful musicals of all time.
This dynamic production, twice postponed by COVID-19, features bold new choreography by director Amy Campbell (In the Heights (Helpmann Nominated for Best Choreography), HAIR, Funny Girl), and musical direction by Damon Wade, with musical supervision by Andrew Worboys (RENT, American Psycho).
Conceived and originally directed by Michael Bennett, A Chorus Line ripped down the curtain to reveal the struggles of Broadway performers to be seen, heard, recognised and respected.
During a gruelling musical theatre audition, desperation will open the door to exploitation, and racism and sexism are rife. Featuring the music of Marvin Hamlisch (including ‘Dance Ten; Looks Three’, ‘What I Did for Love’ and ‘One’) and based on interviews with real dancers, A Chorus Line shows what it means to put everything on the line.
Produced by Darlinghurst Theatre Company
Conceived and Originally Directed and Choreographed by Michael Bennett
