(September 10th-22nd, 2019)
If you're a "live" theatre goer, you know it is the longest running Broadway play ever. A Chorus Line opened on Broadway in 1975 and was an instant classic many have said.
A Chorus Line was and is considered a concept musical with music by late Marvin Hamlisch, lyrics by Edward Kleban and a book by James Kirkwood Jr. and Nicholas Dante. The Broadway musical was centered around seventeen Broadway dancers auditioning for spots on a chorus line, the musical is set on the bare stage of a Broadway theatre during an audition for a musical. A Chorus Line provides a glimpse into the personalities of the performers and the choreographer as they describe the events that have shaped their lives and their decisions to become dancers.
“A Chorus Line is perhaps the best musical ever written,” said Artistic Director Dan Knechtges. “It’s also got some of the most unbelievable choreography you’ve ever seen wedded to an almost perfect score. It’s thrilling, and I can’t think of a better show to celebrate our place as Houston’s home for musical theatre.”
The cast includes, Clifton Samuels as "Zach" and Sarah Bowden as “Cassie.” Joining them are Brooke Averi as “Kristine,” Tiffany Chalothron as “Connie,” Brian Corkum as “Mark,” Sean Ewing as “Al,” Veronica Fiaoni as “Maggie,” Samantha Marisol Gershman as “Diana,” Eddie Gutierrez as “Paul,” Paige Faure as “Sheila,” Leeds Hill as “Greg,” Logan Keslar as “Bobby,” Jacob Major as “Don,” Celia Mei Rubin as “Val,” Alex Stewart as “Mike,” Gabi Stapula as “Bebe,” Madison Turner as “Judy,” Josh Walden as “Larry/Associate Choreographer,” and Sharrod Williams as “Richie.” Austin Colburn and Yasmyn Sumiyoshi will serve as swings.
A Chorus Line runs September 10th through 22nd at the Hobby Center for the Performing Arts.
