A Chorus Line

A Chorus Line, the 2018 Annual Gala Presentation, is a joyous celebration of dance and musical theater-two art forms that City Center has been bringing to New York audiences for 75 years.

In 1975, the stories of seventeen Broadway dancers were brought to life when A Chorus Line opened Off-Broadway. Directed and choreographed by Michael Bennett, with book by James Kirkwood, and Nicholas Dante, music by Marvin Hamlisch and lyrics by Edward Kleban, the musical was born of workshop sessions with actual Broadway dancers (eight of whom appeared in the original cast) who laid bare their personal stories and the challenges they faced in pursuit of their dreams.

This ultimate tribute to the life of the Broadway dancer received twelve Tony Award nominations, winning nine-in addition to the 1976 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The creative team for this Annual Gala Presentation of A Chorus Line is led by Bob Avian (original co-choreographer) and Baayork Lee (Connie, original cast) with music direction by Patrick Vaccariello.
