The One Singular Sensation at Curve this Christmas!
Join us for a sensational Christmas with a brand-new Made at Curve production of the legendary Broadway musical A Chorus Line, directed by Nikolai Foster.
New York City. 1975. On an empty Broadway stage, 17 performers are put through their paces in the final, gruelling audition for a new Broadway musical. Only eight will make the cut. The audition takes an unexpected turn as the director, Zach, invites the performers to open up about their lives and what brought them into theatre. What follows are searing stories of ambition, childhood, shattered dreams and what it means to follow your dreams onto the stage. The emotional stakes are heightened when Zach’s ex-lover Cassie, fresh from an attempt to make it in Hollywood, wants to audition for the chorus line.
With a book by James Kirkwood and Nicholas Dante, music by Marvin Hamlisch and lyrics by Edward Kleban, A Chorus Line features iconic songs including One, I Hope I Get It, Nothing and the hit ballad What I Did For Love.
This inspiring musical masterpiece revolutionised the Broadway stage, with creator Michael Bennett using real-life testimonies from late-night recording sessions with chorus dancers, to amplify and celebrate the lives of theatre’s unsung heroes.
Join us this Christmas for sensational choreography, some of the greatest songs ever written, heart-wrenching personal stories and musical theatre’s most unforgettable finale.
