A Chorus Line: With its blend of powerful vocals, high-energy choreography, and amusing and poignant vignettes, A Chorus Line is a stunning musical celebrating the talented and dedicated performers of the Broadway chorus. The show depicts the final gruelling round of auditions for a new Broadway musical, and for seventeen dancers, this is the life-changing opportunity they have worked towards for their entire career. A Chorus Line is a powerful metaphor for human ambition, revealing the truth of the glamorous yet competitive world of show business, and what happens when you put everything on the line in pursuit of a dream. Marvin Hamlisch’s iconic score features such classics as ‘What I Did for Love’, ‘The Music and the Mirror’, and the acclaimed finale: ‘One (Singular Sensation)’. Based on true stories of the struggles of performers wanting to make it big on the Broadway stage, A Chorus Line has become an instantly recognisable classic, with the original production winning no fewer than nine Tony Awards.
