This Ordway Original production, a reinvented version of the Broadway classic, was previously produced at Chicago's Drury Lane Theatre, garnering rave reviews.

Conceived and originally directed and choreographed by Michael Bennett, A Chorus Line features music by Marvin Hamlisch, lyrics by Edward Kleban and a book by James Kurtwood and Nicholas Dante. The show originally opened at the Schubert Theatre in July 1975. It quickly became a box office hit, receiving nine Tony Awards (including Best Musical, Best Director and Best Choreography) and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The original Broadway production ran for 6,137 performances, becoming the longest-running production in Broadway history until it was surpassed by Cats in 1997. Today, it remains the sixth longest-running Broadway show ever.
