Opera House presents A Chorus Line, the musical | Arts & Culture
This is A Chorus Line, the musical for everyone who’s ever had a dream—to have the chance to dance. Newberry Opera House stages this stunning musical-verite about a chorus audition for a Broadway musical. Sunday, December 9, for two dramatic performances at 3:00 and 8:00 p.m.
In 1984, A Chorus Line became the longest-running show in Broadway history, playing for 6,137 performances at the Shubert Theatre in New York City. The musical is a celebration of those unsung heroes of the American Musical Theatre—the chorus dancers, those valiant, over dedicated, underpaid, highly trained performers who back up the star or stars and often make them look ever more talented than they are. A Chorus Line is an American classic, a celebration of the American Musical.
A Chorus Line departs from the usual glossy backstage musical by presenting a true picture of what it’s like to be in the theatre: glamorous – yes, at times, but also tough, heartbreaking and sometimes even tragic.
Memorable musical numbers include: I Can Do That, At the Ballet Dance, The Music and the Mirror, What I Did for Love, One and I Hope I Get It. The production is a brilliantly complex fusion of dance, song and compellingly authentic drama. The show was instantly recognized as a classic! Winner of nine Tony Awards, including “Best Musical” and the Pulitzer Prize for drama, this is a Broadway best!
Don’t miss this once in a lifetime Broadway experience! Tickets are available at the Newberry Opera House box office. For reservations call 803-276-6264 or visit our website www.newberryoperahouse.com
