After the first round of cuts, each dancer is asked to speak, personally, about themselves…. Based on real Broadway dancers’ stories, compiled by dancer and choreographer Michael Bennett, and with an award-winning score by Marvin Hamlisch, ‘A Chorus Line’ is a funny, heartbreaking, and refreshingly honest journey through these stories of strength, determination, and fortitude on the path to artistic fulfillment.”
