A Chorus Line

Date: 5 Nov 2021

Musical theatre’s singular sensation comes to Sydney Festival with bold new choreography and a refreshed sense of mission.

Conceived and originally directed by Michael Bennett, A Chorus Line ripped down the curtain to reveal the struggles of Broadway performers to be seen, heard, recognised and respected.

Featuring the music of Marvin Hamlisch (including Dance Ten; Looks Three, What I Did for Love and One) and a book based on interviews with dancers, A Chorus Line is an unforgettable portrait of people putting everything on the line during a gruelling musical theatre audition – one in which passion and desperation opens the door to exploitation, and where racism, bullying and sexism is rife.

A Chorus Line opened on Broadway in 1975. Ten Tony Awards, a Pulitzer Prize for Drama and countless international plaudits later, it remains one of the most successful musicals of all time. To this day it continues to represent the depth of diversity and breadth of sacrifice that fuels the world of the theatre.

This dynamic production, twice postponed by Covid-19, features bold new choreography by director Amy Campbell, musical direction by Andrew Worboys, and a cast including Ryan Ophel, Angelique Cassimatis and Ross Chisari.

A Chorus Line also plays Sydney Opera House, February 11 to March 6
