Yes, a great creative team of women and what a show.  Every person who participated in this memorable musical, both on and off the stage, should feel proud.

An excellent run that they should be proud of. They opened the season of HAMILTON and were able to keep going for almost four years. I can't wait to hear the next score Sara Bareilles writes.

This was coming as soon as they announced the tour was going non-equity. It had a very healthy run considering it opened during Hamilton's juggernaut season.

Now the important question is, who closes the show as Jenna? Mueller could return for the final month. I'd also be satisfied if Torns closed the show as Jenna. But I'd be willing to bet that it'll be Bareilles.
A Chorus Line revival 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. Another non-equity tour launched on January 20, 2018. The tour ended its US run in Kansas City and then toured throughout Japan August & September 2018.

Beautiful show. I'd be happy to see Bareilles or Mueller close the show. This is a show that was better than anyone predicted I think because of the artistic integrity of Sara Bareilles, who really crafted a wonderful score.

I've never seen this show but I think I will before it closes. I'm happy to see the long closing notice and that the show will have another holiday season. Hopefully everyone who wants to see this will have an opportunity to do so now.

Not terribly surprising, but seeing this thread title hurt. I love this show so much (have seen five times, going back next month).

Bringing Sara back is the most obvious choice for the next round of Jenna casting. I hope they give Stephanie a full run (with her own playbill and all) and then go back to Sara to close it out...especially since my partner will only go and see it again if it’s with Sara.

Congrats to everyone involved on a good run.
