VIDEO AUDITION

a-chorus-line.jpeg

A Chorus Line is a stunning concept musical capturing the spirit and tension of a Broadway esnemble audition. Exploring the inner lives and bittersweet ambitions of professional Broadway performers, the show features one powerhouse number after another.

 

Memorable musical numbers include "What I Did for Love, "One," "I Can Do That," "At the Ballet," "The Music and the Mirror," and "I Hope I Get It." A brilliantly complex fusion of song, dance, and compellingly authentic drama, A Chorus Line was instantly recognized as a classic.

*PLEASE NOTE*: Please be aware that A CHORUS LINE contains mature themes and subject matter, including conversations about physical abuse, discrimination, homophobia, sexual situations, drug use, and strong language. If cast, actors under the age of 18 will need parental consent to participate.
