I was thinking about the original A Chorus Line cast and their success after the show.

I think the most recognizable cast member is Kelly Bishop (Sheila). She had a quick break out when she scored a supporting role in An Unmarried Woman. And of course more recently she had success on The Gilmore Girls.

Of course Donna McKechnie (Cassie) continued performing. She can also be seen in a bit part in an episode of Cheers where Carla cracks a joke that she's Sam's ex-wife.

Priscilla Lopez (Morales) shows up now and then on tv.

And Nancy Lane (Bebe) shows up in several episodes of Rhoda doing a really great kooky character Tina Molinari.

Did any of the guys in the show do any high profile work after ACL?

If anyone ever tells you that you put too much Parmesan cheese on your pasta, stop talking to them. You don't need that kind of negativity in your life.

Looks like that episode of Rhoda was directed by the ex-Mr. Chita Rivera

Wayne Cilento (Mike) has had a successful career as a choreographer. He has choreographed/staged Wicked, Aida, the '95 revival of How to Succeed, The Who's Tommy, among others.
Some people can get a thrill, knitting sweaters and sitting still. That's okay for some people, who don't know they're alive!

Robert LuPone helps produce a bunch of plays, correct? I know I looked him up when I saw Conversations with Patti LuPone and she mentioned her brother in A Chorus Line (and her crossing the black line on the stage story).

Let's not forget that the late Thommie Walsh was Tommy Tune's associate choreographer for many of his shows.

"Priscilla Lopez (Morales) shows up now and then on tv."
And there was her Tony winning turn in "A Day in Hollywood/A Night in the Ukraine." And being in the original company of "Nine." And three years in a major role in "In the Heights." Plus being JLo's mom in some movie I don't remember.
