Wowza.
"The Spectacle has, indeed, an emotional attraction of its own, but, of all the parts, it is the least artistic, and connected least with the art of poetry. For the power of Tragedy, we may be sure, is felt even apart from representation and actors. Besides, the production of spectacular effects depends more on the art of the stage machinist than on that of the poet."

I went to a few of these S.T.A.G.E. benefits/tributes in Los Angeles. The (theatre) star-studded one at the Doolittle for Sondheim was incredible.

I didn't see the Jerry Herman one, but after watching this, I sure wish I had!

wish they had the entire video, but that was exciting!!
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.

It is so amazing! I wish the Kennedy Center Honors would recognize Carol Channing. She is getting on in years, so the sooner.....the better.

I love this combo - I've got the track from a 2002 Jerry Herman tribute - it's on iTunes if you want these two with better audio!

The date of the performance was November 10, 2001 in Los Angeles.

An audio recording was released commercially on CD, and there's a high quality DVD boot of the entire evening in circulation.

All of the S.T.A.G.E. benefit recordings are amazing! Each is devoted to the work of one or more composers.

The Jerome Kern is the best, IMO; it has been played hundreds of times at my house.
