The Pulitzer Prize-winning singular sensation comes to Flowertown to kick off the 2019-2020 season! On a bare stage in a Broadway theater, 17 dancers audition for their spot in a chorus line. When the director asks to learn more about each of them as a person, and with room on the line scarce, the hopefuls reveal their own motivations for auditioning, from the comic to the heartrending and everywhere in between. A winner of nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical, A Chorus Line invites us to look beyond the headshot and résumé and discover the inner lives and ambitions of the men and women in the ensemble.
Produced by special arrangement with Tams-Witmark.
“What makes A Chorus Line so devastatingly effective is its honesty of subject matter…You will talk about it for weeks.” ~ Clive Barnes, The New York Times
“Over the course of the show, we get to know their names and their stories, to understand their individual foibles, and to root for them. The members of the chorus are, for a moment, turned into principals; the ripples become the wave.” ~ The New Yorker
