If you’re a musical fanboy(or girl) like me, missed Wicked musical for some reason and am kicking yourself for missing it (but seriously I have no idea how did you miss it since it was showing from 7 December 2011 all the way to 22 April 2012), fret not because A Chorus Line is here to bring you some comfort.
A Chorus Line tells the tales of 17 uniquely different dancers, auditioning for their dream job, a place in an upcoming Broadway production. The catch was that only 4 pairs of boys and girls will be selected from the 17. The 17 dancers who were short-listed from a previous audition told of their stories, many rather melancholic and even tragic, and how they found their love; Dance.
Ultimately, the musical comes to a bitter-sweet end as only 8 hopefuls could be chosen, the efforts of the chosen rewarded, those not selected – dreams crushed.
At the end of the day, this musical [would probably] strike a chord in the hearts of the audience, because for fact that all of us have (or had) a dream, age regardless.
Nominee for 12 Tony Awards and winner of 9 including ‘Best Musical’ and the Pulitzer Price for drama, A Chorus Line Musical is in a league of its own, being the fifth longest-running musical on Broadway (somebody say wow~), A Chorus Line promises you 2 hours and 5 minutes of well-scripted, no-intermission, lyrical entertainment. If you ask me, its entertainment worth as a musical can be compared to the likes of Lion King, Wicked and what not, less all the glitzy props and costumes, and multiple sets.
