Mitzi Hamilton to Direct A CHORUS LINE at Aurora's Paramount Theatre
One singular sensation. That sums up the first-ever, self-produced Broadway subscription series thus far at Aurora's Paramount Theatre, where smash hit productions of My Fair Ladyand Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor® Dreamcoat have absolutely wowed critics and audiences alike.
Now musical theater fans can look forward to another singular sensation in downtown Aurora when the curtain rises on A Chorus Line, the Paramount's third production in its inaugural, 2011-2012 Broadway musical series. Winner of nine Tony Awards plus the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, A Chorus Line introduces 17 dancers all competing for a coveted spot on the line. Get ready for intense drama, big dance numbers, emotionally charged vocals, laughter, pathos, and of course, that fantastic, familiar music by famed composer Marvin Hamlisch.
Spurring more anticipation is Paramount has tapped director/choreographer and former dancer Mitzi Hamilton to direct and choreograph A Chorus Line. Hamilton provided the inspiration for the character of Val in the original Michael Bennett production of A Chorus Line, and she performed the role in the original London company and on Broadway.
A Chorus Line runs Jan. 18 through Feb. 5, 2012 at the Paramount Theatre, 23 E. Galena in downtown Aurora. Performance times are Wednesday at 1:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.; Thursday at 7:30 p.m.; Friday at 8 p.m.; Saturday at 4 p.m. and 8 p.m.; and Sunday at 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. Press opening is Friday, January 20 at 8 p.m.
