They did this show years ago, if i remember correctly, though i didnt see it at the time.

It will be a great role for John Barr and will definitely be there to see it this time.

saw this on Broadway about 12 years ago. it's a good story, but very depressing.
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.

Wow, that's great. I've never seen it and it's one of my most played Cast Recordings. Given the A Chorus Line revival it's also a pretty smart move.

Faced with these Loreleis, what man can moralize!
