A Chorus Line at the London Palladium from 2 Feb 2013
Music by Marvin Hamlisch, book by James Kirkwood and Nicholas Dante and lyrics by Edward Kleban.
The show is about Broadway dancers auditioning for spots on a chorus line. It is set on the bare stage of a Broadway theatre. The show 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. Features songs: One (Singular Sensation), What I did For love, I Can do That, Hello Twelve, Hello Thirteen, Hello Love and Hope I Get It.
The musical is directed by Bob Avian, who was Michael Bennett’s long term collaborator and his co-choreographer on the original production in 1975. Avian was also responsible for directing the 2006 Broadway revival of A Chorus Line.
This revival will become a tribute to the show’s composer Marvin Hamlisch who died in early August this year.
Produced by Mark Goucher, Adam Kenwright, ACT Productions, Tim Lawson, Daniel Sparrow & Mike Walsh Productions.
