Yes, some of it is still Fosse. Look up the threads from when it was in Cambridge.

(and it's wonderful -- I hope NY agrees!)

I just hope this show doesn't take any business away from BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S.

Cast recording was already announced. I believe the release date is in May, but I have no idea when.

I'll be curious what changes or improvements were made. Has anyone been reading the BWW blogs from Molly Tynes? I found it interesting to read about their preparation process, etc.

Re: cast recording - Don't they generally do them about a week after the opening?

There really is no "generally" about cast recordings. They can happen at any time. Sometimes they wait to see if the producers feel it is warranted to put out the extra money. (Some pretty knowledgable folks estimate it costs approx 20K to produce an OBR)


I'm going to look for the original announcement of the recording....

^I don't think they ever officially announced it. There was just a contest on their facebook page to sit in on the recording session. That's a pretty good indication that there will be one, but I don't remember an official announcement.
That's right! Underscore mother-fu@#ers!

^ You may be right, as I can't find one. I wonder where I got a May release date in my head....hmmmmmmmm.

"There really is no "generally" about cast recordings. They can happen at any time. Sometimes they wait to see if the producers feel it is warranted to put out the extra money."

I think it was just something I had read or heard a couple of years back while perusing one of the theater sites. It might've only been pertinent to a particular production at the time.

It's been selling quite well. I hear there won't be any rush for at least a week.

anyone know who the added swings are, or is Brad Musgrove still the only swing in the show?? Also curious about the u/s as playbillvault.com doesn't have all the understudies listed.
A Chorus Line played its final Broadway performance on August 17, 2008. The tour played its final performance on August 21, 2011. A new non-equity tour started in October 2012 played its final performance on March 23, 2013.

Walked past the theater earlier. I still hate the led marquee but love the multicolor lights they put in under it over the entrance. Quite festive.
