A Chorus Line
A Chorus Line is a musical with music by Marvin Hamlisch, lyrics by Edward Kleban and a book by James Kirkwood Jr. and Nicholas Dante.
The show follows 17 would-be dancers in their quest to make the cut for a new Broadway Musical. It’s what they’ve worked for — with every drop of sweat, every hour of training, every day of their lives – for the chance to do what they’ve always dreamed of. One by one, they come forward to share the stories of their lives, putting themselves on the line to get a job in the line. When they’re done, so is the audition; and only eight will remain. A Chorus Line is the musical for everyone who’s ever had a dream and put it all on the line to make it come true – something the students do each and every day at Arts Magnet!
