A Chorus Line high kicks its way into the West End

By | Category: Travel news

Broadway favourite, A Chorus Line, has returned to the West End for the first time since its first London season, which opened in 1976 and won the Olivier Award for Best Musical.

Michael Bennett’s production of A Chorus Line won nine Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama when it opened on Broadway in 1975 and went on to become the then longest running musical on Broadway achieving an astonishing 6137 performances. It features some of musical theatre’s best loved songs: One (Singular Sensation), What I Did For Love, I Can do That, Hello Twelve, Hello Thirteen, Hello Love and Hope I Get It.

The production is directed by Broadway and West End veteran director and choreographer, Bob Avian. Avian was Michael Bennett’s long term collaborator and his co-choreographer on the original production. Avian was also responsible for directing the 2006 Broadway revival of A Chorus Line.

This long anticipated revival – a tribute to the show’s composer Marvin Hamlisch who tragically died in early August 2012 – has been well received by by critics and theatre goers alike, with TV presenter Gloria Hunniford hailing it as being “just what musicals should be – liberating, exciting and infectious.”
