A CHORUS LINE Closes in London Today; UK Tour Planned Fall 2014
The West End's A Chorus Line will close at the London Palladium today, 31 August 2013. It will then begin a European tour before returning to the UK for a tour "beginning in autumn 2014".
Producer Mark Goucher said: "We are extremely proud of this production of A Chorus Line and would like to thank the cast and creative team for their exceptional work. It has been a huge privilege bringing this extraordinary show back to life on the London stage. We will be very sad to see it close."
Michael Bennett's production of A Chorus Line won nine Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama when it opened on Broadway in 1975 and went on to become the then longest running musical on Broadway achieving an astonishing 6137 performances. It features some of musical theatre's best loved songs: One (Singular Sensation), What I Did For Love, I Can Do That, Hello Twelve, Hello Thirteen, Hello Love and Hope I Get It.
For the first time since its first London season, which opened in 1976 and won the Olivier Award for Best Musical, a full London revival of the Broadway production will be staged at the London Palladium from February 5 2013.
The production is directed by Broadway and West End veteran director and choreographer Bob Avian. Avian was Michael Bennett's long term collaborator and his co-choreographer on the original production. Avian was also responsible for directing the 2006 Broadway revival of A Chorus Line.
