A CHORUS LINE Comes To Bass Hall 3/29-4/3


The new production of the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning musical A CHORUS LINE comes to Bass Performance Hall in Fort Worth for a limited eight-performance engagement March 29 through April 3. Tickets are $22-$71.50 and are on sale NOW!

A CHORUS LINE reclaimed its place in the heart of Broadway at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre (236 W 45th St) where it opened to rave reviews on October 5, 2006. Elysa Gardner of USA Today calls it "Exhilarating and endearing, it still has a freshness and fervency too seldom seen in contemporary musicals," while The New York Daily News exclaims "There's nothing better! The show thrills from the opening number to the glittering finale," and Jeffrey Lyons of WNBC TV hails it "an American Masterpiece. A show for the ages." A CHORUS LINE was directed by its original Tony Award winning co-choreographer Bob Avian. For this new production, Baayork Lee will direct and re-stage the choreography.

The cast includes three Dallas-area performers, Emily Rice, playing the role of Vicki, Nick Nerio, in the role of Butch, and Willie Dee in the role of Richie.

Other cast members include Netanel Bellaishe (Larry), Carleigh Bettiol (Lois), Eric Carsia (Don), Erica Cenci (Bebe), Justin Clynes (Greg), Matthew Couvillon (Tom), Seth Danner (Roy), Gaspare Diblasi (Paul), Gina Duci (Diana), Suzzanna Dupree (Sheila), Paul Flanagan (Al), Julia Freyer (Judy), David Glenwright (Frank), David Grindrod (Mark), Cassandra Hlong (Connie), Rylyn Juliano (Cassie), Ashley Klinger (Kristine), Eric Mann (Mike), Ryan Steer (Zach), Jessie Trauth (Val), Megan Wean (Tricia), Hardy Weaver (Bobby), Karley Willocks (Maggie) and swing performers Keron Cindric and Chelsea Swanderski.

A CHORUS LINE recouped its entire $8 million investment after only 157 performances (19 weeks) on Broadway. It broke the theatre's box office record 7 times in its first 5 months. A CHORUS LINE ended its Broadway run on August 17, 2008 after 18 preview and 759 regular performances.

A CHORUS LINE, conceived and originally choreographed and directed by Michael Bennett, features a book by James Kirkwood and Nicholas Dante, music by Marvin Hamlisch and lyrics by Edward Kleban.

The new production features original scenery by Robin Wagner, costumes by Theoni V. Aldredge, lighting by Tharon Musser adapted by Natasha Katz and sound by Shannon Slaton. Orchestrations are by Jonathan Tunick, Billy Byers and Hershy Kay and vocal arrangements are by Don Pippin. The new 2006 Broadway cast recording of A CHORUS LINE was released by Masterworks Broadway and is available in stores nationwide.

The original production of A CHORUS LINE opened at The Public Theater's Newman Theatre on May 21, 1975 and transferred to Broadway's Shubert Theatre on July 25th, opening there on October 19th of that year. It won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Score and Book, and the New York Drama Critics Circle Award. It ran for nearly 15 years, closing on April 28, 1990 after 6,137 performances. A CHORUS LINE remains the longest-running American musical in Broadway history.
