Overview

A Chorus Line is the hugely successful, meta-theatrical show that ran on Broadway for an extensive fifteen years. Now revived for the first time in over thirty years, A Chorus Line dances into the iconic London Palladium.

Winning an incredible nine Tony Awards and one Olivier Award in its opening years on Broadway and the West End, A Chorus Line became one of the most successful musicals of all time. With inventive and engaging music, the performance, which runs without an interval, earned the Tony Awards for Best Original Score and Best New Musical. Written by performers about performers, the show reveals a new side to the art of theatre. Performed on a bare stage, the audience simply watch the cast perform their own songs in one long line across the stage.

A Chorus Line tells the tale of seventeen hopeful dancers and their director as they audition for eight slots in a Broadway chorus. Each dancer has a backstory which is gradually revealed throughout the show. Cassie has previously been romantically involved with the director, Zach, whilst the aging Shelia takes her last stab at performing. During the performance, it becomes painfully clear how much each dancer needs the job, as the audience glimpse into the desperation that drives them to audition. Each performer has their own song as well as a number of ensemble showstoppers. Popular numbers from the show include ‘I Hope I Get It’, ‘At the Ballet’, ‘The Music and the Mirror’, ‘What I Did for Love’ and ‘One (Singular Sensation)’.

Original choreographer Baayork Lee and director Bob Avian reunite to revive their 70’s masterpiece. A Chorus Line features Scarlett Strallen as Cassie, Victoria Hamilton-Barritt as Diana, Leigh Zimmerman as Sheila, Harry Francis as Mark, John Partridge as Zach and Gary Wood as Paul.

'A Chorus Line' is my favourite musical of all time, and this did not let down. The set is so simple, just a white line across an empty stage. Yet throughout the show, characters bare their souls and stories to a casting director to try and succeed in being selected as an ensemble dancer for a new show. Michael Bennett's incredible and beautiful piece of work - a must see if you get the chance.

He show was amazing. John Partridge was brilliant in his role and special mention needs to be given to Alastair Postlethwaite as Larry. The supporting cast in the line all had great stand out moments.

I was expecting to enjoy this more than I did, a 'classic' that was a little too understated for my taste but worth a watch for the individual performances alone.
