A Chorus Line tour dates ➤

This production is directed by Curve’s Artistic Director Nikolai Foster (West Side Story, Billy Elliot the Musical, Curve) and choreographed by Ellen Kane (Matilda the Musical, Netflix, Legally Blonde, Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre) with set design by Grace Smart (Hamlet, The Globe), costume design by Edd Lindley (Billy Elliot the Musical, Curve), lighting design by Howard Hudson (& Juliet, Broadway, West End, Australia) and sound design by Tom Marshall (Grease, Dominion Theatre). The show’s orchestra will be supported by music licensing company, PPL.

Seventeen stories. Eight chances. One singular sensation New York City. 1975. On an empty Broadway stage, seventeen performers are put through their paces in the final, gruelling audition for a new Broadway musical. Only eight will make the cut. A Chorus Line is a musical masterpiece that revolutionised Broadway, with creator Michael Bennett using real-life testimonies from late-night recording sessions with dancers.

Celebrate the lives of theatre’s unsung heroes, as they tell searing stories of ambition, shattered hopes, and what it really costs to follow your dreams. Directed by Nikolai Foster, 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. Join us next summer for sensational choreography, heart-wrenching personal stories and musical theatre’s most unforgettable finale.

Curve’s Chief Executive Chris Stafford and Artistic Director Nikolai Foster said: “Working on A Chorus Line in 2021 at Curve was one of those once in a lifetime moments, and to have another opportunity to re-visit our acclaimed production and share it with a wider audience is something we could never have dreamed of.

“All great shows need exceptional new artists to reinterpret them for the generation to enjoy and in Ellen Kane’s world class choreography, Michael Bennett’s extraordinary piece is invigorated through Ellen’s sensational work. Being able to share this production with audiences in Leicester once more, ahead of visiting the home of dance Sadler’s Wells and then on tour across the UK, reuniting Carly Mercedes Dyer as Cassie and Adam Cooper as Zach is the icing on the cake.”
