Curve is set to bring one singular sensation to Leicester this Christmas with a new production of the legendary Broadway musical A Chorus Line, running Friday 3 to Friday 31 December 2021.
A Chorus Line features iconic songs including ‘One’, ‘I Hope I Get It’, ‘Nothing’ and the hit ballad ‘What I Did For Love’. A Chorus Line revolutionised the Broadway stage, with creator Michael Bennett using real-life testimonies from late night recording sessions with chorus dancers, to amplify and celebrate the lives of theatre’s unsung heroes.
New York City. 1975. On an empty Broadway stage, 18 performers are put through their paces in the final, gruelling audition for a new Broadway musical. Only eight will make the cut. The audition takes an unexpected turn as the director, Zach, invites the performers to open up about their lives and what brought them into theatre. What follows are searing stories of ambition, childhood, shattered dreams and what it means to follow your dreams onto the stage. The emotional stakes are heightened when Zach’s ex-lover Cassie, fresh from an attempt to make it in Hollywood, wants to audition for the chorus line.
Sensational choreography, some of the greatest songs ever written for the Broadway stage and heart-wrenching personal stories combine to create one singular sensation and musical theatre’s most unforgettable finale.
