A Chorus Line recently won the TheatrePeople Award for 'Hottest Ticket' - which is to say, the show that people most want to see in 2013. Based on true stories, the show follows the fortunes of a group of dancers as they audition for a new Broadway musical.
The show's Palladium engagement will be its first full London outing since the 1976 transfer of the original Broadway production to the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane which played until 1979. The revival is being staged in tribute to the show's composer Marvin Hamlisch, who died on 6 August last year aged 68.
A Chorus Line's book is by Nicholas Dante and James Kirkwood with lyrics by Edward Kleban. The London revival is produced by Mark Goucher, Adam Kenwright, ACT Productions, Tim Lawson, Daniel Sparrow & Mike Walsh Productions by arrangement with John Breglio and A Chorus Line Broadway.
