A CHORUS LINE to Feature New Choreography at Fulton Theatre, 3/12-30
The Fulton Theatre continues its 2012/2013 season with a newly refreshed production of A Chorus Line, directed and choreographed by the Fulton's Artistic Director, Marc Robin. The production is a departure from what audiences may already be familiar with-the original staging and choreography by the show's creator, Michael Bennett. Featuring brand new choreography, Robin envisions a fresh take on the production.
"This is a hugely personal show for me," says Marc. "It represents the story of my own life. I can't wait to share my vision of it for Fulton audiences. It's the same script, the same characters and same story; but told a whole new way."
Jessica Lee Goldyn (Broadway: A Chorus Line, Off B'way: On the Town, numerous regional credits) makes her Fulton debut in the iconic role of Cassie. Nathaniel Shaw returns to the Fulton in the role of Zach (Fulton: Curly in Oklahoma; numerous regional credits; Artistic Director of The Active Theater).
