In 1974, choreographer Michael Bennet invited a group of his friends to a studio in New York to talk about their lives as dancers. For twelve hours, with a reel-to-reel tape recorder running, they shared their personal stories, which became the basis for the now legendary musical A Chorus Line. Winner of nine Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize, A Chorus Line is a passionate tribute to Broadway’s chorus dancers: those valiant and highly trained performers who back up the star or stars – and often make them look even more talented than they are. Department of Drama director/ choreographer Brian J. Marcum (Crazy for You) helms a production that simultaneously honors the original work while reimagining its pioneering spirit. Presented by the Department of Drama.
