"A Chorus Line" revolutionized American musical theater when it debuted in 1976. The compilation of real stories from Broadway dancers, who had never been given a voice before, captured the imaginations of the public and earned nine Tony Awards, seven Drama Desk Awards, and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
Songs like "One," "What I Did For Love," and "Music and the Mirror" will forever be part of the American popular song library.
The ensemble cast features Erin Renee Baumrucker, Elizabeth Bushell, Sean Caron, Luis Del Valle, Emma Drazkowski, Trevor Hendrix, Ben Isabel, Lili Javorka, Khnemu Menu-Ra, Tyler Meyer, Marcela Ossa, Madelynn Oztas, Chandler Paskett, Ben Paynic, Madison Jaffe-Richter, Rae Robson, Sarah Sapperstein, Jason Sekili, Maddy Shilts and Whitney Wolf.
The show is directed by MadKap Productions' Managing Director Wayne Mell, with musical direction by multiple Jeff winner Jeremy Ramey and choreography by Susan Pritzker.
Lighting design is by Pat Henderson, costume design by Broadway World Award-winner Patty Halajian, and sound design by Chris Cook. Wendy Kaplan produces for MadKap Productions.
"A Chorus Line" is the second production in MadKap's 2023-24 season, which also includes "The Tale of the Alergist's Wife," "On Golden Pond," and "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime." A subscription package including all four shows is available for $129.
