Rialto Chatter: Will Antonio Banderas' Spanish A CHORUS LINE Come to New York?

A new production of A CHORUS LINE is now on stage in Spain, co-directed by and starring Antonio Banderas! Banderas co-directs the production with actress Baayork Lee , who participated in the original Broadway production.

According to France24, Banderas has revealed that he hopes to bring this production, performed entirely in Spanish, to New York, after its runs in Malaga, Bilbao, Barcelona, and Madrid.

"Afterwards we'll consider the possibility of taking it to America," said Banderas. "I would love that to happen."

He said that "conversations were already under way" about taking it across the pond.

According to Billboard, there is a possibility that the production will play at The Public Theater. Banderas says that he wants the potential New York run to also be performed in Spanish.

A Chorus Line runs from November 16 until January 19 at Teatro del Soho. For more information, visit https://www.achorusline.es/.
