A CHORUS LINE
by Marvin Hamlisch, Edward Kleban, James Kirkwood & Nicholas Dante
August 18th – September 2nd, 2017
Waterfront Theatre, 1412 Cartwright Street
A darkened theatre, a gruelling audition and a ensemble of dancers praying for a job. Multi-award winning A CHORUS LINE tells the story of the gypsies of the Broadway stage. When the director asks each of them a simple question “who are you?” their stories meld together through song, dance and story to provide them and the audience with an audition process unlike any of them have ever experienced. While not all will join the line, none will leave the same as they came in.
