3-D Theatricals' production of "A Chorus Line" celebrates the unsung heroes of the ensemble by breathing new life into a singular sensation that transcends time.
The show is playing through Sunday at Fullerton's Plummer Auditorium.
"A Chorus Line" was an instant success when it first opened on Broadway in 1975. The production won nine Tony Awards, including "Best Musical," the Pulitzer Prize for drama, and is credited as the longest running American-produced Broadway musical.
The show is about 17 dancers who audition for a Broadway chorus line and the stories that brought them there. All the artists are desperate for work and must dance for their lives to land a spot on the line.
Unfortunately, the financial realities of the entertainment industry have not changed much since 1975.
Today, the trials of these fictitious characters plague many performers striving to maintain a career in the unstable entertainment business. "A Chorus Line" is a reality of the present. So, there is no better time to once again bring back the line and reach out to theatergoers.
