Signature Theatre's production of the Pulitzer Prize-winning A Chorus Line officially opened November 5 after beginning previews October 29 in Arlington, Virginia.
Directed by Signature Theatre Associate Artistic Director Matthew Gardiner with new choreography by Tony nominee Denis Jones (Tootsie), performances continue through January 5, 2020, in Signature's MAX Theatre.
A Chorus Line tells the story of Broadway dancers who bare their souls and put their lives "on the line" as they audition for an unnamed Broadway musical. With music by Marvin Hamlisch, lyrics by Edward Kleban, and a book by James Kirkwood Jr. and Nicholas Dante, the musical features standards including "What I Did for Love," "The Music and the Mirror," "At the Ballet" and "Dance Ten, Looks Three."
